WhatsApp launches new video call feature

WhatsApp brings quick switch from voice calls to video calls in Android beta

Currently, to switch between calls, you need to cut the voice call, go back to the chat, and then separately make a video call by clicking on the dedicated video call icon. But, with this new quick switch button to video call does this job easily and quickly. It is not a great way to instantly switch to video when you choose to. If they decrease, the voice call will proceed as ordinary. The button is visible only when you are on a call via WhatsApp.

In this case, the recipient on the other side will get a request for video call, which can either be accepted or rejected.

In the company's announcement for Live Location tracking, it included a graphic that clearly shows the symbols for voice call and video call inside a group conversation.

WhatsApp launches new video call feature

This means that in the beta update, you will not be able to switch between voice and video calls, so you will have to choose between these two options. With the introduction of new features on Instagram and WhatsApp, the company is directly competing with Snapchat and has managed to earn more users due to the sheer number of monthly active users. This consumes a lot of time, and WhatsApp - though late - has now realized that. While features tested on beta mode do not necessarily make it to an official release, but can surely be looked forward to.

The beta version gives every user an access to all new features ahead of public rollout. When you tap on video call button to switch from voice to video call, the other person you are talking to will be first sent a request, and, the voice call will only switch to video call if the other person accepts that request. Currently, the feature is only available for Android users and it is expected that the feature will be available soon for all iOS users as well.
