Video Calling feature available for Beta Users
The video calling feature on whatsapp is becoming available for users at random. It is restricted to the recent beta version of the app only.
This requires that both of the people have video calling enabled on their whatsapp updated version. If they do not have video calling enabled then they will just get a regular call from you.
The video calling User Interface shows up even if the other person does not have the video calling enabled for them.
They will also be able to watch out a video calling option in their call logs however tapping it will just get you an error.
If you have video calling option available, when you tap the call icon on top of a chat, both video call and regular call options will come in front of you.
Just few lucky users seem to have access to this new feature though there is a way to get it running also on your WhatsApp.
How to enable video calling
According to Android Police:
We’ve had success forcing video calling to activate by smearing app data and logging in again. User can try this, but make sure you back up your chats first.
You must remember this that it only works for the beta version of the app. We do not recommend trying this on the regular Google PlayStore version of WhatsApp.
