New Delhi: WhatsApp has mentioned several new features coming to the messaging service, one of which is the ability to create groups of up to 512 members. We can now confirm that customers running the stable version of WhatsApp on their Android and iOS devices have the option.
The news comes from WAbetainfo, which has noted the amendments, which include the ability for a group administrator to have up to 512 members in a single group.

Here’s how to add 512 members to a WhatsApp group
– Activate WhatsApp.
– Click on the three-dot menu next to the search button in the top-right of the screen.
– Select the option to create a new group.
– Create a new group with up to 512 members from your phone contact list.
– As administrator, you can also enable disappearing messages for group chats.
– You have just started a new WhatsApp Group with 512 people.
With some of its features, WhatsApp has lagged behind competing apps. Telegram already allows you to create groups with up to 2 lakh members. Large-file transfers are also available on the messaging platform, which WhatsApp has taken forward with its 2GB file transfer functionality.
WhatsApp has also doubled the number of people joining a group video call, allowing up to 32 people to join simultaneously. We’ve integrated feedback features into conversations so you can send an emoji, such as ‘heart’, ‘smile’ or ‘laughing’, to the other person instead of sending them separately.
