“Today, we’re introducing a brand new WhatsApp app for Windows.”

The statement went to explain that the new Windows desktop app loads faster and is built with an interface familiar to WhatsApp and Windows users. Users are able to host group video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with up to 32 people. WhatsApp also intend to continue increasing these limits over time.

“Since introducing new multi-device capabilities, we’ve listened to feedback and made improvements including faster device linking and better syncing across devices, as well as new features such as link previews and stickers.”
