WhatsApp Video Calling Feature Beta Version Download Live on Android

It’s been a long time since Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced the release of video calling feature for its users. The feature made its debut in Windows version last week and now is finally live on WhatsApp Android app. WhatsApp video call for Android users is only limited to latest beta version 2.16.318 of the app.

A buzz is that the full version of this much anticipated WhatsApp video call feature may first go live on Apple iOS. Where the voice calling feature appeared first on Android platform. To make a video call, users need to download the Whatsapp video call beta version. It shows the error ‘couldn’t place call’ if the user on the other end hasn’t downloaded the latest version of Whatsapp video call.

As it is just a beta version, many more features are expected in the upcoming beta versions or the final update. There is a separate button for video calling at present, and you have to click on phone icon which is assigned for voice call earlier. But as of now, it shows video call, and voice calls options.

WhatsApp Video Call Feature Made its debut on Windows Platform First

A User can switch the camera, mute the audio, and send a message when on a video call. However, sending a message will pause the video call. The three options – cancel, call again, and record a voice message, remained same in the video call what you get in case if the recipient declined the voice call.

Earlier in May, various sources posted about the WhatsApp video calling feature on Android. The video calling option appeared on the app and was disabled at the server end. Later, even the option was removed in the next update.

Discussing the call quality, you can compare with Google Duo experience. Your video call may get paused in the middle even if you have a secure internet connection. The audio quality in video call lagged a bit and is not as good as what you get in a voice call.  A similar feature like ‘Knock Knock’ is also available which shows the preview of the caller before answering the call.

Duo, Google’s new video chatting App is out

Google introduced two new apps for communication at I/O developer conference, back in May. ‘Allo’ for text messaging and ‘Duo’ for video calling. It seems Allo is more interesting than Duo. Allo makes use of the intelligent Google Assistant bot, but Duo is out first. Google hopes it’ll withstand among swam of apps. Laser focus provides a high-quality mobile experience. The app is out for both iPhone and Android phones.

Designed to be 1-to-1 video chat, a client without all the complications and baggage of hangouts. The app is based on phone number, and users can chat with anyone on their contact list that has Duo. Out of the gate, Duo runs on both Android and iOS. The operation of the app is quite simple with just one tap to start a call. A user will be able to see a live video of the caller before answering the incoming call. Google named it ‘knock knock’ and users can turn it off, iOS users don’t have access to see Knock Knock previews unless the app gets open.

“The genesis of Duo was we really saw a gap when it came to video calling, We heard lots of [user] frustration, which led to a lack of use, but we also heard a lot of desire and interest as well.” Said Nick Fox, Google VP of communications products.  Google uses a QUIC protocol in Duo which ensures a better video quality when compared to other video chat services. Duo has an option to flip over to mobile data when a poor WiFi quality is detected. Google says Duo is available for download now in few countries and will be out worldwide sooner. Duo is being billed as a more reliable and simpler way to see family and friends as you talk to them.
