Code Bytes: The messaging app has rolled out a subtle change that will encourage users to make video calls instead of voice calls.
According to a report on Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is bringing Facebook stickers on the chat app, The new stickers will be available in groups according to their categories on the Android app.
The Facebook-owned chat app has also removed the ‘show all contacts’ tab from the app, which according to the report might be a bug as it is still mentioned in the WhatsApp FAQ about finding contacts. WhatsApp had earlier confirmed about the group voice calls. The new beta update too hints of group video and voice call in the app.
WhatsApp has once again come out with yet another update for its users. The messaging app has rolled out a subtle change that will encourage users to make video calls instead of voice calls. WhatsApp has released a beta update that introduces a new video call switch button. It appears when you’re in the middle of a WhatsApp voice call, and tapping it will send a request to the person you’re talking to, asking if they want to switch from voice to video. Previously, users had to cut the call to switch from a voice call to a video call. As per the report on WABetaInfo, the feature currently works on Android devices with Android 6.0 and above. WhatsApp in its previous beta version had rolled out features like Facebook stickers, a new layout for the GIF button and option to manage groups by demoting or removing members from the group. The messaging app has also hinted at group voice and video calls on the app. An option to reply privately to a group member was also seen in one of the previous beta updates.
