The most popular messaging application for smartphones could be working on their own video calling service. WhatsApp has made great efforts to improve its service this year, and its function call appears to be falling.
It will arrive in the coming weeks
The official translation platform WhatsApp is requesting the participation of users around the world to carry out the translation of options that respond to the name of “Video Call” or “Missed Video Call”. White and cylinder. We assume that this function will land soon expected although the first lucky to have her probably iOS users, since to date no mention translations Android is made.
First filtration video calls WhatsApp
Thanks to Macerkopf we can see the first video call WhatsApp filtered. This ensures that the average German version of the application WhatsApp for IOS is 220.127.116.11 and implemented function. Given that in the AppStore available version is 2.12.12 maybe in a few weeks iPhone users can now enjoy video calling on WhatsApp.
For Android application development status is unknown but surely be in a parallel process. WhatsApp always gives the same functions to applications for both platforms but it is normal to have gaps.
When will they arrive?
Everything is in the air and is now only rumors but the truth is that there is little doubt that the new feature is being developed by the property Facebook application.
From the time the company Zuckerberg spent billions to buy WhatsApp (many more than the application generated), it became clear that the businessman had big plans in mind. In less than half a year we have seen how WhatsApp increased safety , improved appearance and added a new service call. And this is just the beginning.
Facebook also launched two calls related services: Hello , which synchronizes the social network profiles with traditional calls; and the role of video calls in Messenger . Facebook is not only adding new services and video calls into their applications, but is doing at a breakneck pace. Why then would miss the opportunity to improve an application that already has more than 800 million users?
Given the speed at which the company is working Zuckerberg would not surprise us to see this new service in a matter of months (or even weeks), so we must be attentive to future updates.
WhatsApp need more than reputation
Now it ‘s going to take more than popularity to address alternatives such as Skype, Google Hangouts or even Face Time in iOS. The new service called WhatsApp does not seem to be having the reception was expected and, unless service improves, it will be difficult for users to get used to it.
It is clear that this year we will witness how WhatsApp longer a simple messaging application and then turns into a full service communications. What we want to know is whether it will become a mere competitor to existing applications or offer something we have not seen so far.
And you, what would you ask Whatsapp video calls?
