We have witnessed some remarkable modifications after the Facebook’s acquirement of the widely used communication messenger WhatsApp. The $1 per year fee has been dropped, and lately the app is updated with end-to-end encryption.
WhatsApp to Introduce Video Calling for iOS Users in Next Update
In last year December, the suspected screenshots of the WhatsApp video call are found online. Whereas everyone was expecting that the company will make the video call feature public in 2016, but nothing happened during the first four months.
Now some screenshots of the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, have been revealed where we can find the “Video Call” icon on top right of the chat screen. Previously, only the voice call option along with profile picture was there and now the video call icon is added next to them.
Whereas the existing beta app version available for iOS devices is 126.96.36.1993, and the video call feature is anticipated to roll out within the next few days with the version 188.8.131.525. To experiment the beta version of WhatsApp, all you need to have is a jailbroken iPhone along with Cydia installed.
Until now, Facebook Messenger and Skype are the best replacements for making video calls. In countries where the internet speeds are relatively slow, we predict most of them will cling to voice calls rather video calls. Earlier the company had first introduced the voice calling features for Android devices and later for the iOS devices. There is no evidence whether there will be a choice for making video conference, just like group calling feature that was lately presented by Messenger.
But still it isn’t confirmed yet when the video calling feature will be introduced for Android devices as no such information is available for the time being. Lets hope that WhatsApp soon introduces such feature for Android devices as well.
