With excitement, WhatsApp is announcing its latest feature – WhatsApp video calling. In the next couple of days, the instant messaging app’s over one billion users will be able to make video calls across iOS, Windows and Android platforms.
According to WhatsApp:
We’re introducing this feature because we know that sometimes voice and text just aren’t enough. There’s no substitute for watching your grandchild take her first steps, or seeing your daughter’s face while she’s studying abroad. And we want to make these features available to everyone, not just those who can afford the most expensive new phones or live in countries with the best cellular networks.
Over the years we’ve received many requests from our users for video calling, and we’re excited to finally offer this feature to the world. Thank you for using WhatsApp and we promise to keep working hard every day to improve the service.
