WhatsApp Beta gain video calling feature for Windows Phone user

It’s kind of strange that some Windows Phone users started seeing video calling feature in WhatsApp. WhatsApp video calling feature is much rumored and it was believe to come first on the Android and iOS device. But ??

Meanwhile some WhatsApp beta users on Windows Phone seeing a video calling feature in latest update. According to report, the feature appears to be available for some users of the Beta app, but may not yet be available for everyone to test.

How to active?

However if you are using beta version and want to get the WhatsApp video calling feature right now then uninstall the app and the reinstall it. Some of users got the video calling feature with this method. Also worth noting is that it looks like trying to initiate a video call with someone who doesn’t yet have the feature will simply result in an error message.

The latest WhatsApp beta version 2.16.260 gain this functionality. Here’s the official change-log for it.

  • Video call option now visible in calls menu page.
  • Removed the all contacts option.

Another report suggests that the people who have front camera can only enjoy the WhatsApp video calling feature yet, but people without a front camera will have the option disabled in the call menu. It’s really great that the app gain a big feature before its Android and iOS version. Maybe one day in future some other apps will also gain new feature in Windows Phone as soon as they arrive on other platform.
