WhatsApp will have group voice chats for up to 32 participants
WhatsApp developers are testing a new feature of group voice chats, in which 32 people will be able to participate simultaneously, about this writes the thematic resource WABetaInfo.
The innovation was found in the beta version 220.127.116.11 for Android. When activating the new feature, an icon in the form of a waveform will appear in group chats. When you tap on it, a voice chat will automatically start. Anyone in the group can join the chat and start a conversation. If there is no activity in the chat for 60 minutes, it is automatically terminated.
The main advantage of voice chats is the ability to initiate a call without calling each participant. However, all users will receive a silent push notification when a chat is created in their group. All audio calls in WhatsApp, as well as other messages, will be encrypted by default using end-to-end protocol.
Recall that Telegram introduced the voice chat feature back in 2020, but WhatsApp has the advantage of more than 2 billion users worldwide.
