WhatsApp’s much-awaited video calling feature is now finally available for Android users . The feature is in its beta mode so only the WhatsApp beta users can access the feature for now.
Although the feature is in beta mode and available only for Android and Windows Phone for now, iPhone users may also get the feature soon. Testers will have to update their app to 2.16.318 version to access the feature. Those who don’t have their app updated cannot make video calls.
WhatsApp has not added any separate button for the video calling. The user is given two options when pressing the call button in the app: voice and video calls. While the voice calling is already available in the app, the video calling enables the users to view the video of the person he or she has called via chat app. The option to change from front camera to rear camera is also available. User can even mute the call and will also be notified in case they have a missed call.
The call log will now show all the call details including the video calls with a small video icon appearing on the side of the contacts video called.
WhatsApp recently also rolled out Snapchat like features for both iOS and Android users. The new feature allows the user to draw over the images and videos shot by the app’s camera. User can even write texts and add emojis over the photos and videos. Along with this, the chat app has also introduced a Group Invite Link feature that allows the admin to invite people in a group chat by sharing a unique link with them.
