WhatsApp Messenger is a proprietary, cross-platform, encrypted instant messaging client for smartphones. It uses the Internet to send text messages, documents, images, video, user location and audio messages to other users using standard cellular mobile numbers.
Nowadays, WhatsApp Messenger is the most popular and most widely used Instant Messaging Application. Not only youth, but elders are also using WhatsApp Messenger as it is free and uses very nominal data if media is not downloaded.
The cross-platform Instant Messenger is getting better day by day ever since Facebook has taken over WhatsApp. Earlier this year WhatsApp has added the mention feature like Twitter and reply feature. Read the following articles to know about the previous three features.
Now WhatsApp is ready to reveal it’s Video Calling feature. This feature will be available on all the platforms viz. Android, Apple and Windows Phone. WhatsApp has been beta testing this feature over the last few months. This is a highly anticipated feature because WhatsApp users have been requesting it for years.
When you receive the WhatsApp app update with the video calling feature, you can try it out by tapping on the call icon at the top right corner of a chat. After tapping on the call icon, you will be asked if you want to make a voice call or a video call. Tapping on the “video call” option starts up a video chat with that WhatsApp contact. If you have not received the app update yet, then WhatsApp will simply make a phone call to that contact instead of presenting you with both options.
“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,” said WhatsApp in it’s blog.
