WhatsApp for iOS now Offers to Preview Voice Recordings Before Sending it

WhatsApp is enabling the quick switch to video call for Android! | WABetaInfo WhatsApp for iOS now Offers to Preview Voice Recordings Before Sending it

This means that in the beta update, you will not be able to switch between voice and video calls, so you will have to choose between these two options. The feature is available in the latest beta version of the app with the version number 2.18.4. It can be done vice-versa for video-to-audio call switch.

We received a lot of reports about this feature now working on Android 6.0+, on WhatsApp beta for Android 2.18.1 and newer. So, to switch between calls, all you need to do is to click on that button.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has been working around the clock to add several new features to its platform. This new feature is now available on Android devices with Android 6.0 and above.

Obviously be sure that the other user's phone supports video calls as well, otherwise the button may not appear. In 2016, WhatsApp added video call functionality to their app but there was no update to that option until now. This consumes a lot of time, and WhatsApp - though late - has now realized that. WhatsApp has included a dedicated button to directly switch between calls.

Packers to name ex-Browns coach Mike Pettine defensive coordinator
The addition of Mike Pettine comes with high hopes for a Green Bay defense that struggled in the later parts of the season. Pettine replaces Dom Capers , who was sacked after spending nine seasons as Green Bay's defensive coordinator.

In case you are wondering, the process will be the same if you want to switch from voice to video call. It is not a great way to instantly switch to video when you choose to.

WhatsApp has always been rumoured to be working on a feature that allows users to switch to video calls during a voice call. It had heard the suggestions of its users and introduced this new feature which allowed a user to delete messages that have been sent by mistake. Currently, this feature is hidden and under the internal testing by developers.

One tap on the icon will drop a request message to the other user, letting easy swap from voice to video call. We are not sure if the iOS users will get upgraded to the feature anytime soon or not.
