The new Whatsapp Group Video Chat.
The rumours you heard are true!
Leading mobile messaging app, WhatsApp has yesterday announced the addition of a cool new feature to its app. It is called the Whatsapp Group Video Chat. This simply means it is now possible to simultaneously video chat with up to four friends on WhatsApp.
Very Cool, Isn’t it?
“Over the last couple of years, people have enjoyed making voice and video calls on WhatsApp. In fact, our users spend over 2 billion minutes on calls per day. We’re excited to announce that group calls for voice and video are coming to WhatsApp starting today.” It said.
“You can make a group call with up to four people total – anytime and anywhere. Just start a one-on-one voice or video call and tap the new “add participant” button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call.
“Group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and we’ve designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions. The feature is currently rolling out on the iPhone and Android versions of our app.”
This is a really cool news to someone like me that likes a lot of video calls. I can now call four of my friends all at once instead of waiting to finish talking to one before moving to the other.
