After the Facebook’s acquisition of Whatsapp, we have seen some interesting changes. The $1 per year fee is removed, and recently the app is updated with end-to-end encryption. Recently we had exclusively covered about the Call Back and Voice Mail features that will be included in the upcoming updates. In December last year, the alleged screenshots of the Whatsapp video call are found online. While everyone expected the company to make the video call feature public in 2016, nothing had happened in this first four months.
Now we got some screenshots of the beta version of Whatsapp for iOS, where we can find the “Video Call” icon on top right of the chat screen. Earlier we can find only the voice call option along with profile picture, and now the video call icon is added beside them. While the current beta app version available for iOS devices is 188.8.131.523, and the video call feature is expected to roll out in next few days with the version 184.108.40.2065. To test the beta version of Whatsapp, you need to have a jailbroken iPhone with Cydia installed.
Till date, Facebook Messenger and Skype are best alternatives for making video calls. In countries like India, where the internet speeds are pretty slow, we guess most of them will stick to voice calls rather video calls. Last year, the company had first rolled out the voice calling features for Android devices and later for the iOS devices. There is no information whether there will be an option for an making video conference, just like group calling feature that was recently introduced by Messenger.
As of now there is no information when the video calling feature will be rolled out for Android devices. Stay tuned for more updates!
