Facebook Owned messenger App WhatsApp has silently updated its Android version group limit of users which includes now 256 users. Earlier the group user limit was 100 users per group. iOS users have also received an update that brings the same functionality, with version 2.12.13 of the app.
It is worth mentioning that the new group limit is only visible on Android and iOS for now. However, it should reach Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and other platforms soon.
WhatsApp last month got rid of its $1 (approximately Rs. 68) annual subscription fee. Until now,WhatsApp asked some users to pay an annual fee for using the app after the first year of use – though as many of us experienced, most users were not asked to pay after a year, and instead were given extensions each year.
It has been reported that WhatsApp could soon introduce a feature to allow its users to integrate their Facebook account with the instant messaging and voice calling app. The version 2.12.413 of WhatsApp for Android reveals company’s intention to allow users to link the messaging service with their respective Facebook account.
