In this update, the WhatsApp users can use the beta version of video call option. In November previous year, we came across a report suggesting that the messaging app is testing a feature that will let users directly switch between video calls and voice calls.

This means that in the beta update, you will not be able to switch between voice and video calls, so you will have to choose between these two options. We might see group calls in the future, as there is a hidden string in the update that says: 'Couldn't switch between voice and video call because this feature isn't available in group call'. It's hardly a revolutionary change but it helps make the whole WhatsApp calling experience a little more seamless. Currently, to switch between calls, you need to cut the voice call, go back to the chat, and then separately make a video call by clicking on the dedicated video call icon.

Once you click on that icon, the app will send a request to the recipient without disconnecting the voice call.

Basically, WhatsApp is making it easier for the users with the Quick Switch functionality. The feature is available in the latest beta version of the app with the version number 2.18.4. Voice and video calls are now available for one-on-one conversations only. So switching between video and voice calls will take no time at all.

That's where the company tests experimental and upcoming features. Irrespective of whether your voice recording is interrupted by low battery, incoming call or any other operations it will be saved nevertheless. In order to better focus on its development and usability, the team has stopped releasing updates on Windows phones, Blackberry and old Nokia phones as they are no longer supported by their original manufacturers.
