It can be known that WhatsApp Group calling allows up to 32 participants to voice call with each other for free. While a total of 512 members can be added in a group on WhatsApp. Voice calling uses your phone's internet connection rather than your mobile plan's minutes. Data charges may apply. When you receive a group voice call, the incoming WhatsApp group voice call screen will show the participants currently on the call, and the first contact listed will be the participant that added you.
Also, Group voice call history will appear in the calls tab. You can tap the call history to view the individual participants from the call. You can even join missed calls if they are still ongoing.
