Whatsapp is rolling out video calling on Android, iphone and Window Phone.
In a post by Mark Zuckerberg, he said,
Today we’re bringing video calling to WhatsApp. Voice calling has grown quickly, and video calling has been one of our community’s top requests. We’ve been working on it for a while to make sure it works even in places without a strong network. Enjoy!
WhatsApp video calling in the coming days will be available to more than one billion users can make video calls across Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone devices.
In a blog post they said,
We’re introducing this feature because we know that sometimes voice and text just aren’t enough. There’s no substitute for watching your grandchild take her first steps, or seeing your daughter’s face while she’s studying abroad. And we want to make these features available to everyone, not just those who can afford the most expensive new phones or live in countries with the best cellular networks.
This they say is a request from users for video calling, something most have asked for over the years.
