Leaked Screenshot Shows Up WhatsApp Video Calling Feature For iPhone, Coming Soon

WhatsApp is although one of the best messenger app acquired by Facebook., was knew that was working on bringing video chatting to its hugely accompained instant messaging app, but when it will go live was unknown. In truth, we still don’t know when exactly but we can now at least expect to get an idea of what it may look like after some screenshots of the feature were leaked today on the Internet Web.

Images here, what appears to be full-screen video calling inside a beta release of the WhatsApp iOS app, which have any incriminating data removed. Shown that video calling is anticipated to work equally well over both WiFi and cellular connections, and will be arriving in a future update of the messaging app.


Version, the build in use in the screenshots is said, with the current version available to beta testers being considerably older, carrying version number 2.12.12.

On top of the WhatsApp video calling, this new version of app also appears to have a new user interface for switching between active chats. Instead of making users come out of chats in older to choose which they really want to interact with via a long list of past chat session. Users will be able to select chats from a tabbed interface on video calling feature inside messaging app of WhatsApp. This interface change could make for quicker message interaction for those that live within multiple WhatsApp conversations, and is something that some of the competing solutions should be taking advantage of as well.


With Apple’s FaceTime and even other Facebook properties already offering compelling video chat features. Now that WhatsApp needs to gain parity in that regard as soon as possible. Given the version numbers mention above though, we don’t expect to see video chat to arrive in the next WhatsApp public update. Optimistically, because that feature alone is one that many WhatsApp users have been crying out for. Quite the reason why it’s taking so long?
