WhatsApp has no doubt become the most widely used instant messaging and video calling platform after being part of Facebook. The app is continuously being updated with new and improved features.
For instance, WhatsApp introduced a dedicated video call button for Android in May 2017 that appeared next to voice calling button. Whereas, the most anticipated feature “Delete for Everyone” was rolled out just last month that enables users to delete a mistakenly sent message from the recipient’s log within 7 minutes time.
WhatsApp Voice to Video Call Switch
There are news that the messaging service is now working on a new feature that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to a video call. It will be a great fun to shift from voice to video without interrupting the ongoing chat.
At the moment, we need to cut the ongoing call in order to switch from voice to video. However, this will soon become the feature of the past as WhatsApp will soon allow you to switch directly from voice to video and video to voice by just tapping one button on your device.
WhatsApp is **internally** experimenting the switch to video call and the group description features right now!

The tweet above hints that the new feature is in beta phase and will be rolled out to beta testers to check its functionality. It is also heard that the new feature will allow you to reject the upcoming video call you don’t want to get. Also, if the user presses the video call button then the other party will have to consent to the request in order to switch the voice call to a video one.
Another report claims that WhatsApp is testing a feature that will allow users to directly mute a video. Moreover, a Group Voice Call feature will also be the part of latest beta version.
