In the words of Facebook’s David Marcus, “Really excited to announce the global roll out of group calling in Messenger today. From any group conversations, just tap on the phone icon to initiate a group call. You can then manage individual participants on the next screen. If you have the latest version of Messenger, you should see the phone icon appear in group conversations within the next 24 hours.”

‘Group Calling’ lets a user add 50 participants at the same time.

It’s a pretty huge number and it is unlikely that you need to call so many people at the same time. So the limit of 50 on group call is fair enough!
