Gizchina News of the week

WhatsApp was made popular by its extremely simple UI and UX, which didn’t even require a login and password — it worked right from your contacts list. With a growing user base (it has more than 1 billion users right now) came requests for two crucial features — voice and video calling. Voice calling was announced some months back, while here we are talking about video calling.

There’s no clear timeline on when everyone will get the feature. Like most other features, this one too seems to be having a slow rollout. Keep an eye on your app updates, you might be the next one to get it!
