To make the video calls, you will have to tap the call button upon which you will see two options, both Audio and Video to place a call. When you select the Video call option, your video call will be placed to your friend. You have options to choose either primary or Selfie camera for the call.
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. Over the years we’ve received many requests from our users for video calling, and we’re excited to finally offer this feature to the world.
WhatsApp, CEO and co-founder, Jan Koum said in a statement:
Video calling is the most requested features from people in India. We are proud to have the opportunity to launch this feature in India, where we now have 160 million users, and we look forward to seeing people use WhatsApp to talk to their friends and loved ones face to face.
