WhatsApp has been bringing in new features to march at pace with its competitors. Recently, the popular messaging app added features like Documents support, Mentions and we also saw the upcoming timeline feature that resembles Instagram’s stories. We had reported earlier this year that WhatsApp calling had appeared on Beta app but failed to work as intended. Now the Video feature has been once again enabled on the latest beta app and it works like a charm. And starting today, video calling will go live for all 1 Billion+ users on Android, iOS and Windows.
In case you are already running the latest Android beta, you can check out the feature by tapping on the ‘Phone’ icon on the top right and selecting ‘Voice Call’ from the option. Its as simple as this but make sure the person you are calling has installed the latest WhatsApp Beta version, the one that supports video calling. WhatsApp call is still in beta and you either need to be signed up for the beta program or download the latest apk from here.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular Messaging apps with more than 1 billion monthly active users as of February 2016. It is commendable to see how WhatsApp is adding features in a balanced manner and is picking pace gradually. Last year around, WhatsApp introduced the calling feature and this has kind of become the defacto way for me to call. In the recent past, the call quality has improved by miles and the audio calls are finally something that we could live with. With the Video feature WhatsApp, will be at par with its competition and we also expect (especially in mobile first countries like India) a sharp rise in users who will use video calling feature for the first time through WhatsApp.
