Latest WhatsApp beta now lets you switch between voice and video calls
12 January 2018, 01:45 | Megan Pierce
WhatsApp calls are currently only available in one-on-one conversations but might be available to group chats in the near future
Well, WhatsApp does let its user make voice and video calls to each other.
If the user does not want to switch to the video call, he can reject the request of the video call.
So what happens is, during a voice call and one of you wants to switch to video, they will have to tap on the video icon (as highlighted on the screenshot). They are preparing to bring a new option for the voice and video calls in a group. The feature is now available for WhatsAppbeta for Android and we can definitely expect the feature to debut soon for all Android users around the world. In this update, the WhatsApp users can use the beta version of video call option. The new update which is now rolling out to the beta testers adds a button to swap to video while in an audio call. This quick switch button is present on the call screen and pressing it will switch between a voice and video call or vice-versa. So it consume a lot of time of the users. Additionally, any incoming call would interrupt and abandon the voice recording process, this bottleneck also seems to be solved now.
What do you think about this new feature? But then again, if you live in Zimbabwe for example where network can be an issue, it might then take you forever to reconnect and at that point the flow of the conversation would have been disrupted. It can now be done by taping a single button in the in-call UI. This feature first spotted by WABetaInfo and it looks like the messaging app is the only testing feature and collecting feedback from beta users to make the feature work better.
In this case, the recipient on the other side will get a request for video call, which can either be accepted or rejected. The feature is available in the latest beta version of the app with the version number 2.18.4.
WhatsApp's most recent media content addition, the GIF button, which was already available on iOS, and later arrived on Android. Well, WhatsApp has finally rolled out that feature, however, it's now only available to the beta users.
