Chatting apps have become an essential part of our lives, especially during the past few months, when the worldwide pandemic has forced us to stay home.
WhatsApp, among others, has made it possible for people to communicate with their dear ones. About a billion people use WhatsApp to keep in touch, which means that the service is not only reliable but also simple to get used to.
Recently, the developers have introduced an update that improves the app’s voice and video call quality.
Update 2.20.176 Beta
The new update is rolling out via over the air channels. Still, not everybody can download it right away, because, as the name suggests, the update is only available for beta users.
If you are not part of WhatsApp’s beta program, you might be delighted to hear that everybody who owns an Android-based device can join it. The update is set to launch for all users next week.
What Is New?
The new update will improve the overall quality of voice calls in WhatsApp.
Also, the update will increase the number of participants that can join a voice or video call.
“Group video and voice calls now support up to 8 participants. All participants need to be on the latest version of WhatsApp.” – extract from patch notes.
We suggest that you join WhatsApp’s beta program since it’s worth it. You’ll be among the first who get a new update, and you’ll always be up to date on safety patches.
Additionally, you contribute to the improvement of WhatsApp as a service, and that’s great. It’s the least we can do to support such a fantastic service that we can freely access.
Many of us take WhatsApp for granted, though we shouldn’t since it can become a paid app at any moment.
