Have you seen the ever-so-famous poop emoji? What about some of the other “classics?” Many of the ones seen nowadays are some of the designs created through WhatsApp. WhatsApp is a globally popular messaging app (over 1 billion users worldwide) that has nearly everything including multi-platform capabilities and unique emojis to help people all over the world to seamlessly communicate with one another. Did I say nearly everything? Seems that just changed. One thing severely lacking was video calling, a feature in use for years and currently, in use by Skype, Apple’s Facetime, Viber, Line, and more recently Google’s Duo, and WhatsApp seems to have finally gotten the hint and will soon be catching up. According to TechCrunch, a group of users, has reportedly received the feature in beta versions of the app, said the video calling features the option to change between rear and front-facing camera mid-call, as well as the standard mute and red hang-up buttons with different layout and sizes depending on the device.
As late in the game as they are, WhatsApp boasts being the most popular messaging app in the world by a large margin, according to Cnet, used more than any other in 109 countries. With a user base like WhatsApp’s, it shouldn’t be hard to keep up with even skype which has a significantly longer run than most.
