WhatsApp brings quick switch to video call in the latest beta update

Whatsapp for Business

Now after the end of the report, Whatsapp will not offer any security updates and new features in the future.

This time, they have come up with a simple yet useful feature that will soon allow all Android users to seamlessly switch between a voice call and a video call. After the arrival of this feature, if the user is on a Whatsapp voice call with anyone, he can make a video call without disconnecting the call. The switch button appears when the user is in the middle of a WhatsApp voice call.

The users are advised to keep in their minds that this feature is limited to Android beta testers or those who've signed-up for WhatsApp's Beta Program.

You can download the updated app from the link given below. This quick switch button is present on the call screen and pressing it will switch between a voice and video call or vice-versa.


Such small changes show how WhatsApp under the wing of Facebook is slowly evolving as a mobile communication app. The feature is now available for WhatsApp beta for Android and we can definitely expect the feature to debut soon for all Android users around the world. And, the button will switch your voice call to video call or vice versa.

The beta version gives every user an access to all new features ahead of public rollout. If they decline, the voice call will continue as normal. Additionally, any incoming call would interrupt and abandon the voice recording process, this bottleneck also seems to be solved now. Currently, the feature is only available for Android users and if the feature becomes a success iOS users should start receiving it too.

According to sources, the company is supposed to roll out UPI (United Payments Interface) -based payments in India and it is also testing new services, businesses in the country.
