A while ago we reported that some Android and Windows Phone users are reporting the availability of video calling feature in the latest version of their WhatsApp application. After initial testing with beta group, WhatsApp has made the video calling feature available for users worldwide. Over 1 billion users of WhatsApp will be able to utilize this video calling feature.
The video experience is nothing different, you have already experienced that on Skype, Facebook Messenger, Google Duo and in other such similar applications. While video calling, you will be able to see yourself and the caller in a small window.
WhatsApp users have been long clamoring for the option to place video calls. It seemed only a matter of time before this option was available on the most popular messaging platform after it introduced voice calling in April last year.
We haven’t been able to test the feature in Pakistan but there are reports that some users have already got the update. If you are from the former camp, keep checking the Google Play store for updates and if you are the latter one, do mention in comments how has your experience been of using the service.
