WhatsApp for Android’s beta app users can now take advantage of video calls on their devices.
(CCM) — WhatsApp for Android users will soon be able to enjoy video calls. Several versions of the latest feature are currently in testing with the app’s beta testing program, starting with v2.16.316. With the update, when users click the dial icon, they will be prompted by the app to choose between voice and video calls. Presently, the feature is only available if both the caller and the recipient are both using the same beta testing version of the app; if the recipient is still using an old version, the caller will receive an error message.
Users who are interested in checking out the video calling feature can sign up for WhatsApp’s beta testing program to get the latest version downloaded on their devices. Interestingly, WhatsApp has not yet released a date when the feature will be officially available for all users, despite the fact that rolling out a video calling feature was one of the company’s main targets for the year. The app was first rumored to be added sometime in May; however, the company removed it before it ever made it to a broader audience.
