WhatsApp brings quick switch from voice calls to video calls in Android beta

In the 2.18.4 version of WhatsApp beta for Android, a dedicated button has been added to switch from video to voice call or the other way round.

WhatsApp has always been rumoured to be working on a feature that allows users to switch to video calls during a voice call. In one of the older versions of WhatsApp beta references for group video and voice calls were spotted.

Another most sought after feature WhatsApp is working on is group video and voice calls. If you wish to leave the testing program at any time, just switch to the public version of WhatsApp app.

WhatsApp calls are now only available in one-on-one conversations but it might be available to group chats in the near future, the report said.

Have you experienced WhatsApp's new quick switch feature?

The feature is now available for Android users on WhatsApp beta latest version - which is 2.18.4 and newer. Imagine you are on a voice call via WhatsApp with your friend, and suddenly decide to make a video call instead. The transition will be extremely seamless and it is no longer required to disconnect the call so as to switch to another form of communication. Once you tap the button, a request will be sent to the receiver. It is not a great way to instantly switch to video when you choose to. So it consume a lot of time of the users.

In case the recipient doesn't accept the call request, WhatsApp will continue the voice call.

In terms of changes, the latest update brings new UI to manage Stickers for Windows Phone users. For instance, imagine you are on a voice call with your friend and decide to switch to video call. The latest updated version of this update is 2.18.2 which brings mainly hidden features to the app. But considering this is not the first instance we have come across this feature, it seems highly likely it will be available sooner than later.
