Prefer video calls over voice? Is WhatsApp your favorite way to keep in touch? Then we've got good news for you.
The billion-user chat app is pushing video calls live in its Android app, as spotted by Android Police.
There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the roll out - some users are getting it in recent beta versions while others aren't. Updating the app doesn't manifest the video chat function, and if the person on the other end doesn't have it enabled, they'll just see a voice call.
WhatsApp has been working on adding various features to its messaging service. Earlier, WhatsApp was rumoured to add call back, voicemail, and zip file sharing support to the service. Now, a latest leak tips that the company is planning to add video calls alongside other features.
Microsoft’s research unit is working on an innovative way to improve Room2Room video calls. Room2Room is a life-size telepresence system that leverages projected augmented reality to enable co-present interaction between two participants.
