The developers of WhatsApp started testing a Video Calling feature for the application a few weeks ago. Well, it seems that the testing period is now over, as the latest stable version of the application supports Video Calling.
We’re introducing this feature because we know that sometimes voice and text just aren’t enough. There’s no substitute for watching your grandchild take her first steps, or seeing your daughter’s face while she’s studying abroad. And we want to make these features available to everyone, not just those who can afford the most expensive new phones or live in countries with the best cellular networks.
The new WhatsApp also comes with a new feature that allows you to draw and even add emojis to images that you’re about to send on WhatsApp. You should know that this feature was added to the beta version of the application not long ago and is similar to the feature found on Snapchat.
Keep in mind that you will be able to make a Video Call on this application only to the people who have installed the latest WhatsApp version on their devices. For example, the latest WhatsApp version on Windows phones is 2.16.688.
There are many WhatsApp users who now hope to see multi-user Voice or Video Calling feature being added to their favorite application, which will allow them to make a Voice or Video call on WhatsApp with more than 1 person at the same time. This will be quite hard to make it possible, especially when it comes to mobile data connections. However, as long as the mobile devices will be connected to a Wi-Fi network, we think that it might work out.
