After the much awaited WhatsApp calling feature, now is the turn of free WhatsApp video calling. A month ago, WhatsApp was the only instant messaging app living in the Stone Age without a voice call feature. Now, WhatsApp wants to challenge Skype with its free WhatsApp video calling feature.
Facebook invested a huge amount of money in WhatsApp and is looking to gain a wider audience with world’s most popular messaging app. Recently WhatsApp updated its app with new material design update. WhatsApp is already huge. By plugging the security problems and giving it a facelift it breathes new life into the existing platform which was already doing a grand job of undermining text messages and MMS. By adding voice calls it begins tackling the next obstacle to expansion – the carriers and traditional cellular communication.By adding video calling, WhatsApp would easily topple the grandfather of video chat (Skype) and assert an almost impregnable position at the pinnacle of digital communication. That end-game, once stated, seems impossible to deny. If that is not already the goal for WhatsApp’s future expansion, it really should be.
A recent report by The Rem claims that WhatsApp is all sent to roll out free WhatsApp video calling feature in May. According to the report, messaging app has already out a trail version for WhatsApp employees.
The soon to be introduced feature will be similar to Skype’s video calling facility. This unannounced feature will be initially available to selected Android users. The inside sources that wish to hide their identity say that this free WhatsApp video calling has been a success.
