As we earlier mentioned, the Video Call option is now live on Beta Whatsapp APK for Android. Though the feature is expected to be rolled out first for iOS, the beta version (20.16.80) of Whatsapp was released with the video call option. Since this is not a public roll-out, not all the features are available as of now. The UI of the app remains same as earlier versions, but the tap on the call icon on the Chats menu gives options to choose between a voice call and a video call.
Though the feature is integrated, the video calling is not yet activated we can’t make the calls right away. Stay tuned for few more updates since we expect Facebook to add more features in the upcoming beta versions. The video call option is present only in the Chats but not in the Calls menu. Recently, we exclusively reported about the Call Back and Voice Mail options that might also added in the upcoming beta versions.
Facebook also released the standalone apps for Windows and Mac users. It works same as the Whatsapp Web app; the users need to connect the Whatsapp installed device to the internet for accessing Whatsapp on PC. While the document sharing feature is not available in the Web app, the company added it to the Windows & Mac apps with the recent latest firmware update. Supported file formats for sharing on this app are CSV, DOC, DOCX, PDF, PPT, PPTX, RTF, TXT, XLS and XLSX.
