Facebook-owned WhatsApp recently increased the users limit of WhatsApp groups to 256 whereas previously it was limited to only 100 people.
This is really a great feature for all the WhatsApp group admins who always want to add as more as possible participants to their WhatsApp group so that they can broadcast the message to more people.
For Android, the latest version of WhatsApp is v2.12.437 but 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 play store or 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 is Now Free Forever
The company last month made WhatsApp free for lifetime by removing the $1 annual subscription fee. Until now, WhatsApp asked 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.
More Than 1 Billion Monthly Active Users
Earlier this month WhatsApp touches the user base of 1 billion, levelling itself with Google’s free email service, Gmail. You will surprised to know that WhatsApp witnesses 42 billion messages per day, 1.6 billion photos per day, 250 million videos per day, and has 1 billion groups.
