WHATSAPP provides users with group chats, which are a cheaper alternative to traditional group calling.
It’s linked to group video and audio calls – and just a few clicks away.
How to make a group video call on WhatsApp?
Creating a group call on WhatsApp is easy and requires just a few extra clicks than usual.
Here’s a three-step guide on how to do it:
- Open WhatsApp, then tap the CALLS tab
- Tap New call and then tap New group call
- Find the contacts you want to add to the call, then tap Voice call

“We’re making it easier to connect to your groups on the fly,” a WhatsApp spokesman told The Sun.
“Join ongoing conversations with your groups anytime, effortlessly and right from the chat view with one click.”
To make a group call from an individual chat:
- Open a one-on-one chat with one of your contacts
- Tap Voice Call
- In the call, tap Open (up arrow) and then tap Add Participant
- Find another contact, then tap ADD
- Tap Add participants if you want more people to join

Group calls can have a total of up to 32 participants.
Is a WhatsApp group video call free?
