With COVID-19 taking the world by storm, people all around the world are spending more time on WhatsApp calls than ever before. They use it as a platform to connect with their friends and relatives while isolating but being able to group call only four people simply isn’t enough.

WhatsApp also added that the feature was built to accommodate to as many users as possible so those who use older devices or have poor connectivity won’t be missing out on all the fun. What are you waiting for? Update the app on your phone and call your family and friends now to enjoy this free feature together with one another.
