Nice to meet you, *****!
May you specify which issue do you have and which app you are using?

Thank you!
we are un group of 31 members praying online using WhatsApp. Unfortunately if we are connected and want to add another member it won’t allow more, is there a limit to how many people can connect in the group?


Got you
Let me get back to you on this, and while I'm on it, please stay in the chat, thank you!

In the latest iOS, WhatsApp allows to invite up to 1024 members to a group

What about android?

On android its the same
Are any administrators in your group to check the rules? Maybe some limitations were applied

Customer Replay

How or where to go check the rules? I am the admin . Also how to create a group and allow anyone to add anyone

Customer Replay

because right now only one person can add, before we use to have the add button available to anyone so if any person wants to add he or she just click the add button

You may try to change the permissions of the group following these instructions

  1. tap and hold the group in the CHATS tab.
  2. Then, tap More options > Group info.
  3. Tap Group settings > Edit group info

Or alternatively add members following this one:

  1. If you want to add someone to your Whatsapp group, here are different ways to do it:
  • Send them an invite link.
  • Add them directly as participants.
  • If you are not an admin, you can still share the invite link with which you have joined. You can also request the admin to add your friends as participants. You may not be able to add participants if the group is full.

Group is full meaning how many
right now we have to ask the admin but we want everyone to be able to add a participant, we had that before in a different group

You may ask admin to give you a permission to add chat members
Any WhatsApp group has a limit of 1024 members

Customer Replay

okay thank youb

Also limit of admins is 100
You are welcome!

Customer Replay
