WhatsApp introduces new feature of video call switch button

The transition will be extremely seamless and it is no longer required to disconnect the call so as to switch to another form of communication. This new feature is added to the WhatsApp Beta 2.18.4 version, which is now rolling out to users enrolled in WhatsApp Beta program. In 2016, WhatsApp added video call functionality to their app but there was no update to that option until now. We might see group calls in the future, as there is a hidden string in the update that says: 'Couldn't switch between voice and video call because this feature isn't available in group call'.

WhatsApp has been working on the Quick Switch feature since last few months.

There have been rumors about group calls and this update brings a new hint.

After all, there are times when a voice call may be initiated between two strangers or people who are talking for the first time for a objective. When you click on the button, the recipient on the other side will receive a message requesting whether they like to switch from the voice call to a video call. Once you tap the button, a request will be sent to the receiver. The users will now be able to add other users while being on an active audio call. Besides, many of them are often released as beta so as to fix the bugs before an official release is made possible.

This new, group voice call feature has been one of the most awaited feature on this popular messaging service. This new feature is now available on Android devices with Android 6.0 and above. There is also an option to prevent the creator of the group to be deleted from the group by other co-administrators. The version is 2.17.443 and it bring a lot of new features to the table for users to try out before the update goes live. It is not a great way to instantly switch to video when you choose to.
