WhatsApp, the popular cross-platform messenger has finally rolled out its long-awaited WhatsApp Video Calling Feature for Indian users. The feature was made available to the beta users back in October. WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum announced the news and said that video calling feature will be rolled out to 180 countries along with India.
The messenger hasn’t added any additional control to operate WhatsApp Video Calling Feature. Now a user is given two options namely voice calls and video calls when he presses the call button in the app. Voice calls are meant for standard calls that we normally do, while the video calling allows users to view the video of the person.
When asked how well the feature will work on poor internet connection, WhatsApp India business head Neeraj Arora said:
How we have built this product is just like voice calls, which is if you have a great network condition- a WiFi or 4G- it will be HD quality, and you start moving to conditions which are not that great, it will be slightly low resolution, we hope it will still work but the quality will go up and down a little depending upon the quality of the network.”
The WhatsApp Video Calling Feature comes with several options including easy switch from front camera to rear camera, call mute and missed video call alerts. A complete log displays all the call details including the video calls on the side of the contacts.
