The much awaited WhatsApp Video Calling feature for Android has started rolling out for android beta users. WhatsApp Video Calling was first rolled out to beta users on Windows Phone few days back.
To get video calling feature you need to have latest beta version of WhatsApp Messenger Version 2.16.319. To make a video call, both users need to be on the latest beta version of the App. In case the other user is not having the latest version, then you will get error message “couldn’t place call”
As this is first beta with Video Calling feature, you will see more improvements and additional feature in upcoming beta version.
It will be interesting for you to know that this not the first time Video calling feature is made available to beta users. Back in May beta version was released to some random user, but was rolled back quickly.
