Is Video calling coming to WhatsApp ?
WhatsApp might soon introduce a new video calling feature according to a report. The Facebook-owned company is prepping to launch the feature first on iOS and then on Android. The service will let you make Skype-like video conversations through WhatsApp.
Additionally, WhatsApp will be introducing new ‘Chat Tabs’ that would let you switch to your chats in an easy to use interface.
While it would be a welcome feature for WhatsApp users, it won’t probably be approved for use here in the UAE because of ongoing restrictions. As you may know, current laws prohibit video calling features like Skype, FaceTime and Facebook Messenger from operating freely.
Voice calling was introduced to WhatsApp earlier this year, though the service was almost immediately blocked in the UAE.
