During the ban, most people rely on video calls to stay in touch because they are unable to hang out with friends and family! Among other things, WhatsApp is a popular platform used for the same.
Against this background, WhatsApp released an update to "simplify group video chats". Meanwhile, we hoped that the platform would increase the limit of up to four people for video calls. Instead, WhatsApp made a more modest change in functionality.
According to a tweet from WhatsApp users can now make a group video call simply by tapping a video call icon in the group chat box. However, the option is that this option is only available in groups with 4 or fewer members.
We made it easier than ever to start a WhatsApp group call for groups of 4 or fewer people. In your group chat, tap the video or voice call icon to start a call directly with everyone in the chat! 🙌

You used to be able to tap the video call option, but then you had to manually select between the members of the group you want to film with. This step has been omitted here and you can now make the call directly.
WhatsApp is also actively working to remove fake messages on the platforms. Rumor has it that you can quickly identify the credibility of a message by searching it directly on Google. This function is expected to be referred to as a "search message".
WhatsApp has also reduced the limit for forwarding messages to one chat at a time to check for fake messages. The forward message limit was previously set to five.
