Yes! You can now make video calls on Whatsapp, all you have to do is update your Whatsapp application on the Google Play Store and also tell your friends and family to do the same else they will get “Couldn’t Place call” error message.
“Today we’re bringing video calling to WhatsApp. Voice calling has grown quickly, and video calling has been one of our community’s top requests. We’ve been working on it for a while to make sure it works even in places without a strong network. Enjoy!” says Mark Zuckerberg owner of Facebook and Whatsapp on it’s Official facebook page
How to initiate a Video Call on Whatsapp
- Go to Google Play Store to update to the latest version of Whatsapp
- Launch the App, Tap Calls
- Tap the thumbnail of the contact you wish to Call
- Tap the Camera Icon below the expanded image
NOTE: You can only call Whatsapp Contacts that have already upgraded to the latest version of Whatsapp.
If this Video Call feature on Whatsapp is optimized to work in places with not-too-good internet network as mentioned by Mark, we may be seeing Whatsapp overtaking Skype, imo and other Video call apps.
