WhatsApp Video Call Launched And Available To All Users

After being tested on beta level, finally, video call on WhatsApp is now available to everyone no matter your country. This new feature has made WhatsApp all-in-one instant messaging app been ahead of every other chat apps with the highest number of users around the world.

I've waited for this rollout knowing that I won't need so many apps at the same time for communication. This is another big competition for Google Duo which was developed for video calling as WhatsApp now has both voice and video call in one app.


Video call release was officially announced on WhatsApp blog saying:

"Our goal at WhatsApp has always been to help as many people as possible stay in touch with friends, family, and others they care about. That means making a product that’s simple, easy to use, and accessible no matter where you are. We started with messaging and Group Chat. Then we added voice calling. And we did it in a way that works across thousands of device and platform combinations all over the world.

Today we’re excited to announce the next step in our efforts to connect people – WhatsApp video calling. In the coming days, WhatsApp's more than one billion users can make video calls across Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone devices.

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 whiles he’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. Thank you for using WhatsApp and we promise to keep working hard every day to improve the service."
