WhatsApp is among the most popular apps used right now. Everywhere on the planet millions of people are sending messages using WhatsApp, so any changes made to it makes a difference. The update they are implementing at the moment is a very big one. WhatsApp is is bringing out support for video calls within the Android section, the problem is that not everyone Android user has received the new feature.

The new feature will be available only on the beta version of WhatsApp for now. The feature can’t be accessed until you update the app itself, this only means that a bigger rollout will come soon enough.

If you want to access the video calls feature using WhatsApp you can access it the same way you are accessing voice calls. The way to do that is to tap on your call button while you already are in a conversation with someone and a dialog box will pop on your screen giving you the option to make a voice call or a video call. All you need to do next is hit video call and you are set to go. What this feature brings new is that its integration is intuitive and a new bonus added to the dialogue box that helps you from preventing any accidental voice calls you might make.

The video calling feature has been long awaited to drop since WhatsApp added the voice calling function in March 2015. The only real competition WhatsApp will face regarding video calls is Skype and FaceTime (iOS).

To give the new WhatApp video calling feature a try all you need to do is download the APK for the beta version 2.16.318, and keep in mind that both the caller and the receiver need to have WhatsApp activated to be able to make a video call.
