Do note that the WhatsApp video calling feature is only available for those who have updated to the latest beta version of the app. The video calling service in WhatsApp hasn’t been made live yet, and you will only find the new option to make video call. Now when you tap on the call button in WhatsApp, you will get two options- Audio call and Video call.

The changelog for the latest WhatsApp 2.16.80 update for Android mentions clearly that the video call option has been added to the app but it is not active yet and will be made available soon. Apart from this major feature, there are no new visual changes except the usual performance improvements and bug fixes.

Then install the file in your Android device by opening it, and you will see the new video call option in WhatsApp. The service will be started soon, so stay tuned.
