WhatsApp‘s updated Mac app now allows group video calls with eight people and audio calls with 32. Users can also join ongoing group calls, view call history, and receive call notifications even if the app is closed.
Mac users can now revel in an enhanced WhatsApp experience previously rolled out for Windows. The latest WhatsApp iteration for Mac introduces the long-awaited group call capability. Video chats now support up to eight participants, while audio conversations can accommodate a remarkable 32. The update doesn’t stop there – users can hop onto a group call even if it has already begun, peruse their call logs, and opt for notifications for inbound calls, all without keeping the app running.
This fresh design isn’t just about adding new features. It’s tailored to the Mac ecosystem, ensuring user familiarity and optimized performance on larger displays. Users can swiftly drag and drop files into ongoing chats and view an extended chat archive. Staying true to its commitment to user privacy, the Mac app ensures end-to-end encryption for all messages and calls, preserving the sanctity of personal communications across devices.
