It’s possible that WhatsApp could soon get a much-needed function. Now, without having to end the connection, you may directly switch between voice and video chats using the WhatsApp Android Beta app. This functionality has been in beta testing for a while and has finally been made available for Android.
For someone who lives in a location with terrible connectivity, the call switching option is particularly useful because it enables you to switch to lower-bandwidth voice calls to carry on the conversation.
You currently have to end the call and then pick it up again with the same individual. According to WABetaInfo, the call switching feature spares you from having to deal with this inconvenience.
The call switching feature in WhatsApp has also been engineered to be incredibly simple to use. You will notice a button to switch the call when you are on a video or voice call. A video call button will appear if you are on an audio call, and vice versa. After a little delay, tapping the contextual button will change the call’s mode. While you are on a WhatsApp call with someone, the messaging button will be replaced with the call switching button.
Along with the call switching capability, WhatsApp also thought of and included security elements that I enjoy.
Prior to a call being switched, the party on the other end must consent to your request. This guarantees that no one can activate a video call without your consent.
