If you find groups on WhatsApp annoying, you may want to look away from this post right now. And if you are one of those who loves long group conversations, then this is going to be a great news. So far, Whatsapp restricted to you only having 100 participants per group, but according to the latest update, you will be able to add as many as 256 participants per group on Whatsapp. 256 is an odd number of participants, but any addition is welcome, right?
This still doesnt quite beat the 1000 people that you can add in a group on Telegram, but Whatsapp is finally moving in the right direction. there have also been rumors that Whatsapp would soon be bringing in Video call on board, alowing it to compete with the likes of Skype and Google Hangouts.
As we understand, only the most recent update to Whatsapp has the feature where you can add 256 users to your group. You will minimum need to be on Whatsapp version 2.12.367. This version is available on Playstore, so you do not have to worry about downloading the update from Whatsapp’s website and installing it. Simply, make sure you have the latest Whatsapp update from the Play Store. We have not been able to trace the same on iOS so far, but that shouldn’t be far behind now.
