Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp is testing video calls for some beta users, more than a year after it rolled out voice calls.
Some Android users who have joined WhatsApp's beta program are reporting the ability to make video calls, Android Police reports. Screenshots show that tapping the call button or contact card brings up a dialog with voice and video as options.
The person on the other end also must be a beta user with the voice-calling feature enabled. If not, the call will revert to voice only, according to Android Police.
The feature's availability seems to be random at this point. PCMag wasn't able to access it today from an account that participates in the Android beta program. Android Police and others report success forcing video calling to activate by wiping app data and logging in again.
