Overview

You can send WhatsApp Group Messages from the MultiLine Messaging App for Microsoft Teams. This feature allows multiple MultiLine users to be in a group chat with one WhatsApp user. MultiLine users can have multiple chats and group chats with the same WhatsApp user. 

WhatsApp Group messaging supports up to 10 MultiLine users in a conversation.
