After releasing a beta build of its Android app that included support for video calls, WhatsApp is now bringing the feature to all users, on iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile.
WhatsApp is on a roll lately. After adding support for GIFs on iOS, the app started testing Status, a Snapchat-like feature to share images with doodles and stickers. By adding video calling, WhatsApp is now even more able to compete with sister-app Facebook Messenger and other instant messaging apps like Line or Viber.
Despite not being as innovative as other apps in the Facebook family (like Instagram for example), WhatsApp is still one of the most-used instant messaging apps out there. Video calling is nothing new now, but I’m convinced it will be a great add-on for its millions of users.
How To Start A Video Call On WhatsApp
Starting a video call on WhatsApp is as easy as starting a regular audio all. Open any active chat you have, tap the call icon, and then select “video call.” Voila!
