The beta version of WhatsApp for iOS has started offering built-in support for video calls.
According to a German blog, WhatsApp is all set to receive the video call feature within the coming weeks. The feature is currently in its testing phase. The new feature will allow you to switch between front and back cameras. Leaked images show a small square present on the bottom centre allowing the users to move the video freely.
The updated version is also likely to get some changes in its design, giving more focus to the green color. Also expected is a tab-based user interface that would allow WhatsApp users to switch between different chats without having to go back to the chat list, sources claim.
After getting support for making calls back in January, this is the biggest feature to hit WhatsApp messenger.
The addition of a video calling feature will surely pin WhatsApp as a strong competitor to Skype.
