There have been reports this week that WhatsApp video calls have returned to Beta users of the WhatsApp app.

The feature was first available in May of 2016, but was soon yanked for unknown reasons.

The feature is available in the beta versions of WhatsApp for Android, iOS, and for Windows Phone. However,  both parties must have the beta app installed in order to actually make a video call.

For those on a version of WhatsApp which includes video calling support, you’re able to tap the call button or tap on a contact card to kick off a video call. In this case, a new dialog box will appear, offering the choice between a standard voice call and a video call.

In addition, the call log will show which calls were made via video by annotating them with the camera icon, instead of the telephone icon.

Users have long been clamoring for a video call feature on Android, therefore its a huge disappointment that its taken this long to implement.

Hopefully, in the near future all 1 Billion plus users will be able to access video calling on WhatsApp.
