–You Can Now Make Group Video Chat With WhatsApp: See How
Who doesn’t use WhatsApp these days? Only someone who doesn’t have a smart phone
The good news is that the WhatsApp team are paying attention to the needs of whatsapp users and are doing everything possible to bring as much satisfaction to its customers as possible
In this Note:
WhatsApp has introduced a new special feature, ‘group video calls,’ which now brings it to par with other major messaging apps.
The app is now starting to add group video calling to its iOS and Android app, the company announced Monday.
WhatsApp has supported video calling since 2016, but calls were, until now, limited to two participants. With the latest change, the app is upping its support to four total participants.
Although this new development might seem like a fairly modest one when you begin to compare the feature with the already existing features of other social networking apps
Facebook Messenger supports group video calls of up to 50, while Snapchat supports 16 participants.
Apple’s FaceTime will work with up to 32 people when iOS 12 launches later this year.
But the feature is likely more challenging for WhatsApp than some of its competitors.
Its video calls, like other messages sent within the app, are end-to-end encrypted by default, for one thing.
The company also needs to ensure new features are optimized for people with slower connections and older devices.
So get ready to try out the new feature that is about to hit you soon.
All you need to do when the time is right is to update your whatsapp app to enjoy the soon to be added feature
