Quick switch between calls and video calls in WhatsApp coming soon

Soon you can easily switch from a regular WhatsApp call to a video call. You don’t have to end your regular call first.

We just found some new hints for this feature in WhatsApp’s translation section for iPhone. For example, notifications if someone rejects or cancels an upgrade call request.

Previously we saw strings like “Requesting to switch to video call” and “Upgrade to video call?”. This means that the person you are talking to should first accept the upgrade of the call.

Similar notifications are also in the translation section for Android. Now the translation is progressing, we expect the new feature soon in WhatsApp.
