WhatsApp group video calling feature is beginning to roll out starting this week for both iOS and Android.
The feature allows you to make a video call that supports a total of four participants, Mashable reported. So far only two participants could engage in video calling by WhatsApp.
What makes the WhatsApp video call feature different from the rest of the rival services is that it is end-to-end encrypted by default.
In order to start a group call, start a video or voice call with one of the contacts. Following this, you will see a button at the top-right corner of the screen that will let you add another participant to the call. Once the call gets connected, an Add Person icon is shown on the top right, above the names of the recipient. Next, if the third user accepts the call, both the names will be shown with a comma separating them. To upgrade to the newer version of WhatsApp one has to download the latest update from Google Play store or an iOS store.
Till now people depended on Skype, Google Hangouts for video calling for group, but with WhatsApp entering the game, it might be a scene changer as it has taken over all other instant messaging services.
