Through the app, you will now be able to add an unlimited number of Tiles to your list. It is important to note that your app will only connect to 8 Tiles on iOS and 4 Tiles on Android at a time. This is a factor of Bluetooth 4.0 limitations.  (Apple's iPhone 7 can currently only handle 2 Tile connections.)

One device (phone/tablet) can however simultaneously connect with up to 6 active Chipolos.
