WhatsApp Group Chat Now Supports Up To 256 Users

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has silently pushed a server-side update to its app on Android that increases the number of users included in a group chat up to 256.

Until now, a WhatsApp group chat could include up to 100 users. However, the update now pushes the limit to 256 users. iOS users have also received an update that brings the same functionality, with version 2.12.13 of the app.

For Android, the expanded group limit is visible on v2.12.367 and above. Those Android users who do not see the update yet can download the latest version (v2.12.437) of the application from the company’s website. It is worth mentioning that the new group limit is only visible on Android and iOS for now. However, it should reach Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and other platforms soon.

WhatsApp last month got rid of its $1 (approximately Rs. 68) annual subscription fee. Until now, WhatsAppasked some users to pay an annual fee for using the app after the first year of use – though as many of us experienced, most users were not asked to pay after a year, and instead were given extensions each year.

Apart from scrapping the annual fee, WhatsApp also revealed its upcoming plans where it wants people to connect with businesses and organisation directly.

Earlier this month the messaging company hit 1 billion monthly active user mark, levelling itself with Google’s free email service, Gmail. As per the latest stats, WhatsApp witnesses 42 billion messages per day, 1.6 billion photos per day, 250 million videos per day, and has 1 billion groups.
