WhatsApp Video Calling allows you to place a video call to anyone using WhatsApp. On Android, video calling is available starting on Android version 4.1. If your phone's operating system is not supported, video calling will not be available to you.
Note: Make sure you have a strong Internet connection when placing or receiving video calls. A poor or improperly configured connection may result in poor video and audio quality. If you are connected to Wi-Fi, your video call quality depends on your wireless network signal and data speed.
To place a video call, simply open the chat with the person you want to video call and tap Video call .
When someone video calls you, you'll see an incoming WhatsApp video call screen.
To switch to a voice call, you and your contact should be on a video call. If one person taps the button to turn the video off, the other person will be notified that the video is paused. Once the other person turns their video off, the call will be switched to a voice call.
To switch back to a video call, you and your contact should be on a voice call. If one person taps the video call button, the other person will see a request to switch to a video call. Once the other person accepts, the call will be switched back to a video call.
