WhatsApp for iOS now supports group voice calls with up to 32 participants, reactions coming soon

The latest version of WhatsApp for iOS brings a feature that the company teased a week ago. Now users can participate in group voice calls with up to 32 participants. Everything here is new with this update.

WhatsApp is preparing many new features for the coming months, e.g. B. Reactions, larger files that users can send, community feature and more. With version 22.8.80 of the app, users can now participate in group voice calls with up to 32 people.

This update includes a redesigned UI with a social audio layout, speaker highlight, and waveforms.

In addition, this new version of WhatsApp for iOS has an updated design for voice message bubbles and info screens for contacts and groups. There is also a new optimization when accessing your favorite media in the gallery.

It’s important to note that all of these features are now being made available in the app, but it might take a few more weeks for them to be available to all users, as is usually the case with new WhatsApp features.

Aside from releasing these features to all users, WABetaInfo recently discovered that the developers are preparing Reactions 2.0 for its desktop version. This means that in a future update, users will be able to respond to a message with any emoji they like.

Last but not least, WhatsApp continues to work on the ability to remove the expiration date of a disappearing message. WABetaInfo explained:

Keeping a message doesn’t make it disappear from chat after it expires, but anyone can keep it if they don’t agree to keep the message in chat after it expires. If a message is preserved, it means that it is a disappeared message that has been turned into a normal message to avoid expiration. If someone tries to pick up a message, the message is immediately deleted for everyone and disappears from the chat
