First spotted by WABeta info, WhatsApp will soon give you the option to switch to video calls during voice calls.
Since it is already in beta, this new feature of WhatsApp should not take long to reach all the Android users across the world. Currently, to switch between calls, you need to cut the voice call, go back to the chat, and then separately make a video call by clicking on the dedicated video call icon.
Such small changes show how WhatsApp under the wing of Facebook is slowly evolving as a mobile communication app. This feature in mainly introduced to encourage the Whatsapp video calls.
If the offer is accepted, the call will be switched. They can easily and quickly switch from voice call to a video call by tapping on the video call button that appears on the call screen.More news: Row over report of presence of Lalu 'aides' in jail
The company will now carry out testing in the beta version before implementing it in the final version of the app.
WhatsApp is now one of the largest messaging apps with almost 1.5 billion users. Now users using these smartphones will not be able to create new Whatsapp accounts and neither can re-verify current accounts. If the recent reports are to be believed the company is also working on integrating the UPI payment system and is now testing the same with services like BookMyShow, MakeMyTrip and others.
While the report doesn't mention anything about switching from video calls to voice calls, I assume that the option should also come at the same time.
You can sign up to it here, in order to try them out before they officially launch.
