Leaked Screenshots Reveal WhatsApp's Possible New Features


12/26/2015


The missing video call support of WhatsApp may be expected soon, shows leaked screenshots.



In the month of September 2015, WhatsApp’s popularity just got even more prominent as its monthly active users’ count “crossed 900 million”, whereby making WhatsApp “one of the most widely used instant messaging services worldwide”.
 
WhatsApp had been bought over by the company of Facebook, which allowed people to share text messages, photos, videos and offered voice call facilities. However, one of the missing features of this app was the lack of “video call support”. The latter provides “an edge to competing apps such as Hangouts and Skype”.
 
Interestingly, leaked screenshots of WhatsApp has created a buzz, as the pictures indicate that “WhatsApp may soon receive video calling support”. The screenshots appear in a German website wherein an iOS WhatsApp user seems to be on an “ongoing video call”.
 
The leaked screenshots show that the video call interface in WhatsApp “appears” to be mirroring its voice call format, “with green-dominated tabs”. Moreover, the screenshots also reveal that there will be muting option in the video call feature along with the choice of switching cameras “while on video call”.
 
In Ketan Pratap’s words:
“According to the website, WhatsApp for iOS version 2.12.16.2 is being tested internally, and is the build that developers and beta testers are already testing video calling feature on. So far, there has been no word on video call support officially arriving to WhatsApp but speculation has it the feature may be rolled out early next year”.
 
Furthermore, rumours have it that WhatsApp will also test “a multi-tab UI” whereby allowing the users to access “one conversation” from another without the hassle of “going back to the main chat list”. So far, there have been very limited available details “about multi-tab support on WhatsApp”.
 
Looking at the past patterns, the new video calling feature of WhatsApp could be expected to be launched in the month of March as during the last month of March, WhatsApp had began to roll out “voice calling support” with the Android users which soon moved over to “other platforms” like “iOS, BlackBerry, and Windows Phones”. Therefore, Pratap writes:
“We can expect the company to start video calling rollout somewhere during the same period next year. Notably, Facebook's standalone Messenger app already supports video calls”.
