Whatsapp Video Calls Are Going Live!

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet, so even small changes warrant some attention. This isn't a small change, though. This is a big one. WhatsApp is rolling out support for video calls in the Android app, but not everyone has the feature yet.

Some users are reportedly getting the video call feature for WhatsApp.

The world’s most used instant messaging service has been getting new features recently. The updated GIF support, document sharing and different emoji for example.

Video calls are becoming available seemingly at random. You won't need an app update as long as you're on one of the recent beta versions (people are reporting success on a few builds). If the person on the other end doesn't have video calling enabled yet they'll just get a voice call. You'll still be able to see the video calling UI, though. The call log shows that as a video call, but tapping the video button just pulls up an error message (below).

I've had success forcing video calling to activate by wiping app data and logging in again. You can try this, but make sure you back up your chats first.
