It appears that WhatsApp is gearing up to launch its much-anticipated video calling feature. According to a report from Germany, the latest beta versions of WhatsApp for iOS have video calling support built-in. A couple of screenshots leaked by a German website show the video calling feature in action on WhatsApp.
As per the leaked images, users will be able to mute their microphone as well as switch cameras during a video call. Similar to the voice calling feature on the app, the video calling interface will have decline and accept buttons with an image of the person making the video call. User will be able to make video calls using Wi-Fi or cellular data connection, as per the report.
The new feature is currently being tested, and will apparently be released to the public in the coming weeks… possibly making its way to iPhones first. The voice calling feature was first leaked during the same time last year, and was rolled out to Android devices in March 2015. The video calling feature is expected to be released in Q1 2016. In addition, reports suggest that WhatsApp will soon be releasing an update with a revamped UI, which will bring some sort of tab-based user interface to make switching between conversations much easier.
