WhatsApp launches new video call feature

WhatsApp launches new video call feature

WhatsApp has released a new update through the Google Play Beta Program: the version is 2.18.4. When you click on the button, the recipient on the other side will receive a message requesting whether they like to switch from the voice call to a video call.

By pressing this button, which appears when one is in the middle of a call, a request can be sent to the receiver of the call, asking if he or she wants to switch to a video call instead.

We received a lot of reports about this feature now working on Android 6.0+, on WhatsApp beta for Android 2.18.1 and newer.

Today, in this update, we have noticed that WhatsApp has finally enabled something very small but interesting.

Last year, WhatsApp unveiled several features in order to enhance user experience and now it seems that the company is gearing up to bring some more useful features to the table.

Eagles-Jaguars reportedly among several London games set for 2018 season
Philadelphia has yet to appear in a London game since the National Football League began sending teams overseas in 2007. The potential rematch of this year's AFC title game will take place in Jacksonville and will not take place in London.


Bears to hire Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator
The situation is tricky, because Fangio was a candidate for the Bears' head coaching position that instead went to Nagy. Over 7 seasons Tabor managed to survive 2 owners, 5 general managers and 4 different head coaches with the Browns.


Canada convinced Trump will pull out of free trade deal
Talks to overhaul NAFTA between the U.S., Canada and Mexico began in August but have so far yielded few results. However, the President did not promise to not withdraw from the agreement.


Such small changes show how WhatsApp under the wing of Facebook is slowly evolving as a mobile communication app.

The company will now carry out testing in the beta version before implementing it in the final version of the app. The recipient, on the other hand, will be allowed to either accept or decline the switch in the mode of call. To do so, one has to hung up the audio call and make the video call which is really a tedious process. This feature is to switch from a voice call to a video call. Now users using these smartphones will not be able to create new Whatsapp accounts and neither can re-verify current accounts.

You can sign up to it here, in order to try them out before they officially launch.

After all, there are times when a voice call may be initiated between two strangers or people who are talking for the first time for a goal. Till then stay tuned.
