According to reports, WhatsApp has increased the limit on group video calls in the most recent desktop beta. The well-known Meta-owned chat platform previously allowed video calls with up to 8 users, but a future upgrade is expected to quadruple this limit for all users on the desktop programme.

WhatsApp has stopped supporting its previous desktop software built on the Electron platform, meaning Windows users must now download the programme via the Microsoft Store.

Feature scout WABetaInfo has discovered that WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2324.1.0 has started testing the ability to initiate video calls with up to 32 people.

WhatsApp Desktop users can currently make audio calls and video calls with 32 people and 8 people via the Windows application, but an upcoming update is expected to raise the limit for all users, once beta testing for the feature has concluded.
