WhatsApp is constantly upgraded with new features coming out in almost every new update. Like, recently in May 2017 WhatsApp introduced a dedicated video call button for Android which appeared next to voice calling.
Well now, to make video calling more user-friendly the messaging service is now working on a new feature that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to a video call.
Earlier, you would need to cut the call in order to switch from voice to video. However, with this new feature this may not be the case anymore. As, WhatsApp will soon allow you to switch directly from voice to video and video to voice by only clicking one button on your device.
WABetaInfo tweeted on November 16 that “WhatsApp is **internally** experimenting the switch to video call and the group description features right now!”
The tweet hints that the feature is in Beta mode as seen in WhatsApp beta for Android 2.17.163 version. This feature will allow the recipient to reject the upcoming video call if he or she wants.
Also, if the user presses the video call button then the other party will have to consent to the request in order to switch the voice call to a video call.
The report also said that the messaging service is also testing a feature that will allow users to directly mute a video. It also confirmed that a Group voice call feature will also be a part of the latest beta version of this instant messaging app.
Last month, the messaging service rolled out it’s most anticipated feature “Delete for Everyone” that allows users to revoke their sent messages. You can read more about by clicking here.
