Macerkopf says that the feature is currently being tested internally for WhatsApp version 2.12.16.2 for iOS and the build is for developers and beta testers.

If WhatsApp does include this feature, it will take a huge blow at rivals which already train in the number of active users.

What a stupid article. Says "The App has included a Video call button on the latest android beta app" but the article contains screenshots of the iOS app and in the end says "currently being tested internally for WhatsApp version 2.12.16.2 for iOS" and again no mention of Android. Even the title says "Android Beta" but there is no mention of Android in the article.


Please hire better authors iGyaan

I am a beta tester for WhatsApp and I have the option to video call when I tap on the Call icon. But it then says this service isn't available yet.
