WhatsApp’s many free services are a large reason for its popularity.
Now, the tech giant has come up with another awesome feature we’ve been patiently waiting for—WhatsApp video calling!
How to Activate WhatsApp’s Video Calling Feature
WhatsApp’s video calling feature is now live on a beta version of the app (v2.16.80) for Android devices. The APK file, which is ready for download from APK Mirror, has the new feature live on it already.
This new beta app helps you access video calls through WhatsApp. The calls can be performed through the Call button. But, it is not functional just yet. The app is only available to beta testers from Google Play’s testing program.
However, WhatsApp’s video-calling will be revolutionary in many ways. For starters, WhatsApp has close to 1 billion monthly active users yet claims to be totally end-to-end encrypted. We’re assuming that given their obsession with privacy, they will extend the same effort to their video call feature.
It’s yet to be seen how they will optimize this service on WhatsApp, given that the app is so popular in India where network connectivity is notoriously patchy. Also, whether or not video calling will be supported for WhatsApp group chats is another unknown.

Download the WhatsApp desktop app for Windows and Mac OS:
