LeBron James Explains Why He Regrets Giving His Name to His Son
James expects the opening of the school, which will cater to third and fourth graders, to be one of the greatest moments of his life.

The video calling interface allows you to add only one person at a time which means that the fourth person can be added only once the third person has accepted the invitation. You can then tap the new "add participant" button shown in the top-right corner of the screen to add other contacts to the call. With WhatsApp's solution only supporting four participants and now only available for mobile users, it seems it's not aiming at Skype just yet. "It has also been pointed out that such a platform can not evade accountability and responsibility, especially when good technological inventions are abused by some miscreants who resort to provocative messages, which lead to spread of violence". In a bid to tackle the spread of fake news, it will also start placing limits on how many contacts you can forward messages, photos and videos to.

"We believe that these changes - which we'll continue to evaluate - will help keep WhatsApp the way it was created to be: a private messaging app". The WhatsApp group call is available for both iOS and Android platform. While there are existing workarounds to that, we doubt that most people would want to go through the hassle.
