Video calls are end-to-end encrypted

Akin to the messages, video calls on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted. What this essentially means is that no one, except you and the person you intend to call can get access to it. Not even WhatsApp will have access.

No more annoyance

Since WhatsApp video calls can be placed only to the ones in your address book/contact list, it is more of a private affair unlike others, where anonymous people can annoy you by sending call requests.

Optimised for slower networks

One of the biggest concerns in India is the low-bandwidth internet connectivity. To overcome this issue, WhatsApp has optimised the video calling for slower networks. Meaning you'll not have to worry about the slow internet speeds.

No need of other apps for video calls

There are already 160 million active users in India. Earlier, people used to share conversations with their friends on WhatsApp, now that you can place video calls within the app itself, there's no need of downloading other apps.

Works on both Android and iPhones seamlessly

Unlike FaceTime, WhatsApp video calling works seamlessly on Android and iOS smartphones regardless of what platform you are on.
