The WhatsApp Group Video Calling Feature came not too long ago to the popular messaging platform, and we will be taking out time here to show you how it works.
WhatsApp is arguably the most popular messaging app with over a billion daily active users. It is also considered by users as the go-to choice when it comes to cross-platform messaging (iOS, Android, and Windows). Little wonder why they keep making the platform better and better. Adding more and more features to help users communicate better. The latest being the WhatsApp group video calling Feature.
This feature which was announced not too long ago has now become a reality as it has been fully implemented. One thing I like about the WhatsApp group video calling Feature is the fact that it can also be used for presentations, by more than two people, far apart from each other. It’s just like the standard group calling, but you get to add even more people to the conversation. The more, the merrier right? If you’re wondering how to go about this, then read on.
WhatsApp Group Video Calling Feature; How To Start A Group Video Call
First, you’ll have to make sure your WhatsApp is up-to-date. If it isn’t then head to your respective stores(Google Play Store For Android and Apple App Store for iOS etc.) and update the app before following the below steps.
- Launch the WhatsApp application and head to your contacts list. Pick and Click on the person you would like to call and hit the Video Icon/Video call button at the top right side of the screen to Video Call, the person.
As soon as the person picks the video call, you’ll see a Plus Contact sign at the top right corner of the WhatsApp screen. Click on it to add another contact to the video call. This will take you to your contact list. Select any contact of your choice to add them to the ongoing video call.
Now when you Select the contact you would like to add to the video call, he/she gets shown that there are already two people in the video call. If he/she accepts then, they get added to the to the video call.
To add another person to the Video call, Follow the above steps and add another contact.
That is how you make a group video call on WhatsApp. Currently, only a maximum of 4 people can be added to the group video call. Once the number of participants in the group video call gets to 4, the option to add a new contact at the top right corner disappears.
This new group video calling Feature on WhatsApp will definitely bring people a lot closer to each other. Families staying in different parts of the world can actually have a good family time over the net. All thanks to WhatsApp.
