There have been rumors about group calls and this update brings a new hint.

When a user in the middle of a WhatsApp voice call, tapping the new switch button will send a request to the person they're talking to, asking if they want to switch from voice to video.

Popular instant messaging platform WhatsApp announced an update on its platform which would enable users to easily switch from voice to video call.

WhatsApp updates its beta app with new features

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 is not a great way to instantly switch to video when you choose to.

Last month, WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp mistakenly rolled out the "Reply Privately" feature in a beta update that would allow users to privately send a message to a participant in a group without anyone else knowing about it.

In case the recipient doesn't accept the call request, WhatsApp will continue the voice call.

The Packers fired Capers following a 7-9 season in 2017 that was heavily influenced by an injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers . The Browns went just 10-22 under Pettine, and his time as a defensive coordinator in the AFC East was something of a mixed bag.

After their latest live location sharing feature, WhatsApp is adding one more feature to their interface, Group Voice Calling! This consumes a lot of time, and WhatsApp - though late - has now realized that.

Ability to switch between Audio and Video calls.

The feature is now available for Android users on WhatsApp beta latest version - which is 2.18.4 and newer.

WhatsApp's this new addition will surely save the time of users as they do not need to disconnect the current call to make a video call.

In case you are wondering, the process will be the same if you want to switch from voice to video call. There are no official words on when will this feature make it to the stable version of the app. Currently, this feature is hidden and under the internal testing by developers. We are not sure if the iOS users will get upgraded to the feature anytime soon or not.
