WhatsApp Beta gets Video Calling feature with latest update

WhatsApp Beta gets Video Calling feature with latest update

WhatsApp just got a new major feature today in its latest update – The ability to (finally) make video calls. The video calling feature is currently only available for the beta version of the world famous messaging app so if you’re one of the beta users, you might very well be among the first people to try out the new video calling service. Early reports claim that even though the video calls worked perfectly, some users were complaining of a slight lag which they felt even on a 50Mbps Wi-Fi network. Of course, WhatsApp is likely to address that; it asked for quality feedback on video calls, so hopefully it’ll take that into account before making the feature available on stable builds. For those of you who are interested in testing out the new video calling feature can download the latest version of WhatsApp beta from APK Mirror. Do share your experience with us in the comments below. Cheers!! Source: The Next...
