Latest WhatsApp beta now lets you switch between voice and video calls

Facebook-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp, on Tuesday, added a new update to its list of features.
In an effort to encourage its users to make video calls instead of voice calls, WhatsApp has tweaked its calling feature to include an in call switch button. However, if the users want to switch from voice call to video call, they have to disconnect the ongoing voice call and then make a video call. Tapping on this button will send a request to the recipient, asking if he wants to "convert" the current voice call in a video call.
The new feature was spotted by WABetaInfo, which says it is now only available to people who have signed up to the beta version of WhatsApp. This new feature would be possible through a code that enables WhatsApp to link with third-party apps.
However, you might be anxious right now to say what if someone just switches to a video call during your voice call and you're in the wrong environment? The latest updated version of this update is 2.18.2 which brings mainly hidden features to the app.
This feature not only lets users quickly switch from voice to video calls, but lets them quickly switch from video to voice calls as well.
The report suggests that a new button pops up on the screen while in a voice call. Pressing that button will send a pop-up to the person on the other side saying that you're requesting a video call. One of the ways would be to hang up and call again, this time using video call. On the other hand, it is unclear if iOS users will get the feature or not. So switching between video and voice calls will take no time at all. Currently, this feature is hidden and under the internal testing by developers.
