General News WhatsApp to Soon Get Video Calling, Tip Screenshots
#1
Advertisement

WhatsApp is no doubt one of the most widely used instant messaging services worldwide, and crossed900 million monthly active users back in September. One of the features however missing from theFacebook-owned messaging app has been video call support, which gives an edge to competing apps such as Hangouts and Skype.

Leaked screenshots now tip that WhatsApp may soon receive video calling support. A German websitehas posted screenshots from WhatsApp for iOS that show an ongoing video call.

Based on the leaked screenshots, the WhatsApp video call interface appears to be similar to the voice call one, with green-dominated tabs. The leaked screenshots show that users will also get the option to mute as well as switch cameras while on video call.

According to the website, WhatsApp for iOS version 2.12.16.2 is being tested internally, and is the build that developers and beta testers are already testing video calling feature on. So far, there has been no word on video call support officially arriving to WhatsApp but speculation has it the feature may be rolled out early next year.

Apart from video calling, WhatsApp is also rumoured to be testing a multi-tab UI which will allow users to jump from one conversation to another without going back to the main chat list. Details about multi-tab support on WhatsApp are limited as of now.

To recall, WhatsApp started rolling out voice calling support back in March with Android users. This was later rolled out to other platforms including iOSBlackBerry, and Windows Phones. We can expect the company to start video calling rollout somewhere during the same period next year. Notably, Facebook's standalone Messenger app already supports video calls.
