WhatsApp New Feature-Switching Between Audio and Video Calls

In WhatsApp current version, users need to end ongoing voice call to make a video call. WhatsApp made it easy and is working on to add a new feature of switching to video call instantly without disconnecting the ongoing audio call or vice versa.

According to the latest news from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is planning to introduce a toggle that allows a user to switch over instantly. The recipient still has the feasibility to either accept or reject a video call.

This would definitely be an added fab feature from WhatsApp to its users. The specified feature is hidden from end users for now. However, users can have a glance at this in WhatsApp beta for Android 2.17.163 version.

Recent reports even suggest that WhatsApp is testing a new functionality that allows users to mute the ongoing video.  Apart from this, instant messaging App is also working on a feature that allows the user to record voice messages without holding Microphone Icon. Rumors even suggest that WhatsApp is about to introduce a dedicated App only for iPad users.


Let us not forget that recently added feature of Facebook-owned WhatsApp “Delete for everyone” that allows users to revoke messages to unintended recipients within seven minutes.

The deleted messages are replaced with quote “The message was deleted” in the chat.  Beyond the specified time limit, users may not be able to erase the messages.

WhatsApp currently holds 1.2 billion active users worldwide.
