New Delhi: WhatsApp has mentioned a number of new features coming to the messaging service, one of which is the ability to create groups with up to 512 members. We can now confirm that customers running the stable WhatsApp version on their Android and iOS devices have the choice.
The news comes from WAbetainfo, which has noted the modifications, including the ability for a group admin to have up to 512 members in the same group.

Here’s how to add 512 members in WhatsApp group
– Activate WhatsApp.
– On the top-right of the screen, next to the search button, click the three-dot menu.
– Select the option to create a new group.
– Create a new group with up to 512 members from your phone contact list.
– As the admin, you may even enable vanishing messages for group chats.
– You’ve just started a new WhatsApp Group with 512 people in it.
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 pioneered with its 2GB file transfer functionality.
WhatsApp has also doubled the amount of people that can join a group video call, allowing up to 32 people to join at once. We have integrated the reactions features into the conversation so that you may send a single emoji, such as a ‘heart,’smile,’ or ‘laughing,’ instead of sending them separately to the other person.
