We have some good news for the WhatsApp users that own Android devices. It seems that one of the most waited features is finally here and it can be used by anyone who installs the latest BETA version of the application on an Android phone.
If you haven’t guessed already what new feature we’re talking about, then you should know that it’s the awaited Video Calling feature that has been spotted a few days ago on the WhatsApp version for Windows Phone. It seems that the developers have now released this feature for smartphones that run on Android OS.
You should know that the Video Calling feature is currently available only on the BETA version of the application, but it is just a matter of time until it will be added to the STABLE version as well. However, if you can’t wait until then, we suggest you to install the latest WhatsApp BETA version on your Android device and try this feature.
It is good to know that accessing the WhatsApp Video Calling feature is mostly the same as when making Voice Calls. In other words, you will just need to open a chat window on WhatsApp and tap on the “call” button. Once you do this, a new window will appear and it will ask you if you want to make a Voice Call or Video Call. Of course, you will select “Video Call” and you’re done. Keep in mind that the other person will need to have the latest BETA version of WhatsApp installed on his Android/Windows Phone device, or else it will not function.
