Before jumping up to the method, we would like to shed some light on this new feature of WhatsApp. After Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp, the very first new feature we saw was the introduction of WhatsApp voice calls. Thanks to WhatsApp developers’ excellent job as they didn’t let the chat quality drop with the introduction of WhatsApp voice calls. After that, we saw some stability and performance improvements over the course of past 2-3 years. WhatsApp now offers end-to-end encryption for all the communication happening over it. We are not certain what kind of privacy WhatsApp Video Calls will offer, but we are sure that the extra measures  will ensure user safety. The new feature will not let your WhatsApp experience down at all. It will only work as smooth as the voice calling feature worked.

For WhatsApp Video Calls to work, you and the other person must have the same version of WhatsApp installed. The installed version should be the beta WhatsApp which has this new feature in it. Let’s have a look on the method to get WhatsApp Video Calls feature right now on your Android smartphone.
