WhatsApp brings quick switch to video call in the latest beta update

Whatsapp

Whatsapp

The new feature was introduced in a beta update for the messenger app, and is now only available for users who have signed up for the beta version, where the company tests new and experimental features. In November past year, we came across a report suggesting that the messaging app is testing a feature that will let users directly switch between video calls and voice calls. However, if the users want to switch from voice call to video call, they have to disconnect the ongoing voice call and then make a video call.

This button is visible when you are in a voice call: when pressed, WhatsApp will send a request to the recipient, asking if he wants to "convert" the current voice call in a video call.

Android gets the best treatment from Whatsapp developers because the open source platform is convenient to experiment with lots of new features.

However, you might be anxious right now to say what if someone just switches to a video call during your voice call and you're in the wrong environment? It can be done vice-versa for video-to-audio call switch.

However, in case the user decides to reject the video call request, a voice call will normally continue.
