Whatsapp raises group limit from 100 to 256

New Delhi: After announcing 1 billion active users, popular instant messaging application Whatsapp bumped up its group limit from 100 to 256 on both Android and iOS platforms.

Earlier, Whatsapp in November 2014 had raised its group limit from 50 to 100 and now it has more than doubled its limit.

The messaging application was acquired by Facebook in February 2014 and several changes have been made to it since then.

The app in April 2015 officially added voice-calling feature, which was previously available by invitation only.

It also waived off its $1 annual subscription fee making it completely free for its users worldwide.
