WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature as a beta for Android which makes switching to video calls, during a voice call easier.
WhatsApp version 2.18.4 adds a new video call switch button that is visible during a voice call. The users can easily switch to video call automatically, even when they’re on the voice call with a friend, by conveniently clicking on the icon.
Please note that WhatsApp will automatically switch from voice to video only after the recipient accepts the request for video call. However, in case the user decides to reject the video call request, voice call will normally continue.
WhatsApp quick switch feature isn’t available for group calls yet.
As of now, the feature is only available to Android beta testers or those who’ve signed-up for WhatsApp’s Beta Program. Those interested in becoming a beta tester for WhatsApp, can head over to Google Play Store.
