After announcing several new features, Meta-owned WhatsApp is now rolling out the ability to add up to 1,024 participants to groups for some beta testers.
According to WABetaInfo, the feature is available on WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS, but is limited to an undefined number of beta testers.
The report mentioned that if any user wants to check if the feature is available on their WhatsApp account, they can try to create a group or add new participants to an existing one.
WhatsApp is also developing new tools that will give administrators more control over these larger groups in the future, such as a waiting list and an approval system, according to the report.
In May, along with new features, the company introduced the ability to add up to 512 people to a group of 256 people.
Meanwhile, the platform recently introduced another feature for business accounts – WhatsApp Premium – to beta testers in certain countries.
Through WhatsApp Premium, businesses can enjoy some advanced features such as a better way to reach customers and some improvements when connecting new devices.
