You can now have up to 256 contacts on a WhatsApp group


Well, if you’re on #WhatsApp and have been rather unhappy with the limit of 100 people per group conversation, the company has heard your concerns. A new update has found that WhatsApp has increased the group limit to 256 members instead. Now most users of WhatsApp (myself included) might not really benefit from this, but it’s good to know that there is such an option in place for those who could stand to use it.

It’s most likely a server side update though, so even if you have the latest version of the app, you might not see it until WhatsApp switches it on. Also, it’s only being seen on the beta channel for now, so there’s no word on how long it will take to reach the standard Play Store version on Android.

If you’re trying your luck at all, some users believe that they saw this feature with the version 2.12.437 update that is currently available from the company’s site. Do you think you’ll benefit from this particular feature? Sound off in the comments section below.
