Using other apps for Video Calling! Bored switching from one to other! don worry whatsapp has launched video calling which is in similar to voice calling
WhatsApp says the new video calling service is optimized to work in regions like India, where users often struggle with poor Internet connectivity. Kudos!!!!!
They 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,” WhatsApp added.
Starting today, WhatsApp, the most popular messaging app in India, will let you make video calls; just like FaceTime and Skype, the calls will be free, though if you aren’t on Wi-Fi you may have of course to pay for cellular data usage, depending on your plan.
WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum said in an interview to Reuters that video calls will be rolled out to 180 countries within hours after the feature is introduced at the event in India.
Just like messages and voice calls, video calls will be fully encrypted end-to-end, making it technically impossible for the company or government authorities to read messages or listen to calls.
The feature is being gradually rolled out to all WhatsApp users worldwide on iPhone, Android, and Windows phones.
WhatsApp had rolled out the video-calling feature to select users via the WhatsApp beta app on Android and Windows last month, when some users in India and other countries got access.
The video feature will work just like WhatsApp voice calls –
- when you press the little phone button on a person’s profile, WhatsApp will ask you if you want to make a voice call or a video call.
- WhatsApp video-calling will be available to all users running the latest version of the app, and if you are running a previous version, you are advised to update to the latest one.
WhatsApp launched itself as a text messaging service, and as its popularity grew, it has added features like voice calling – introduced in March last year – and now it has added video calling.
So , well it is time for us to test and update the stability of video calls. Please share this and lets make everyone to hangout with their loved ones as easy as possible. cheersssss!!!!!!!!!!!
