Hello readers, the rumored feature of WhatsApp is finally here. WhatsApp has finally launched the Video Calling feature for the beta app testers of the application. I have tried it and it works fine.
WhatsApp will be rolling out this uodate to its users in the month of November and if you want to try it before the official release of the update then you have landed on the right place. Since I am a beta tester of the app, I have received the update and in this post I will be sharing the .apk file of it. This is only for Android users, iPhone users will have to wait for some more time.
So to get the video calling feature, here is what exactly you need to do:
Download the latest version of WhatsApp from the Download button given below.
The link will redirect you to Dropbox and you can download the WhatsApp apk from there. You can select the Direct download option if you don’t have a Dropbox account, and if you have it then you can sign in or download directly, its all up to you.
Install the app.
Since you are installing an application through its .apk file and not from Play Store you may get an error of Allow Unknown sources. Don’t worry, this error is because you have not enabled installation of applications directly through the apk files in your phone’s settings.
To do that go to Settings -> Security -> Allow Unknown sources. Now go back and install the app.
Ta-da, you have successfully installed the latest version of WhatsApp application which supports video calling.
Now open it and start video calling. Select any contact, click on the call icon and then you will get 2 options one for Voice call and other for Video call. Select Video call.
Make sure that the other person also has the latest version of WhatsApp app, you can share this post with him/her and after the other person installs the app you both can have a video chat.
