For now WhatsApp is testing video calling feature in its app. The feature we are talking about however is only available for Windows Phone now, iPhone and Android users may also get the same treatment in the coming days.
The WhatsApp video calling feature was first spotted by a Spanish website, which according to that a few beta testers were seeing Video Calling option in their Windows-based handsets. While the user is given two options when pressing the call button in the app; Voice call / Video calls. The voice calling is already gone live in the app, but then, the video calling enables the users to view the video of the person (he/she) has called via chat app. There’s another option to change from front camera to rear camera. User can even mute the call and will also be notified in case they have a missed called.
Updated to WhatsApp requires user to update their chat app in Play Store to avail the feature functionality, it is noted that this feature addition was enabled by default and only required no app updates.
WhatsApp has recently rolled out a significant Snapchat-like feature into its app for iOS and Android users. New features allow a user to draw over the images and videos shot by the app’s camera. Those can even write texts and add emoji icons over the photos and media files. The chat app has also introduced a Group Invite Link feature that allows the admin to invite people in a group chat by sharing an unique link with them.
