In the past months, we’ve heard lots of rumors about WhatsApp’s developers’ intention to add the video calling feature to this application. It’s not impossible to integrate this feature, since a year ago, the developers have brought the Voice Calling feature to Android, then much later it was available for iOS. There are some speculations saying that the same thing will happen with the Video Calling feature: it will be first added to Android, then a few months later it will come to the rest of major platforms. However, there is a website that posted some screenshots of something that seems to be a beta version for iOS, with the Voice Calling feature.
Macerkopf is a German website that got its hands on leaked information about a future beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, which contains the Video Calling feature. In order to prove their readers that they’re talking nonsense, they’ve posted a screenshot of the update which shows the awaited feature.
The update that this website is talking about is dubbed as 18.104.22.168 and in addition to the video calling feature, it will bring the Multi-tab User Interface, which will allow the users to navigate between tabs and they will no longer need to return to the chat menu. The Hangouts and Viber users are familiar with this feature and they will enjoy using it on WhatsApp, as well. For regular WhatsApp users, who never tried other messaging applications, this feature will make their experience more exciting, because of the way they will interact with their contacts.
And the Video Calling feature will surely make WhatsApp a more awesome application, especially that it has a greater number of active users than Skype. Currently, over 900 million people are accessing their WhatsApp accounts daily, in order to send texts, images, video and voice messages, or to call their friends. But we’re pretty sure that, at first, the Video Calling feature will eat a lot of mobile data, so the users will be advised to connect to a wireless network, so they can talk with their contacts without wasting their mobile data.
