Additionally, the feature is unlikely to work in group voice calls. In November a year ago, we came across a report suggesting that the messaging app is testing a feature that will let users directly switch between video calls and voice calls.

WhatsApp has launched a feature in its beta version that will let users switch to video calls from voice calls at the touch of a button.

Reports suggest that Nelson "was coughing and apparently experiencing some difficulty breathing as he left the stage". As Entertainment Weekly notes, this isn't the first time of late that Nelson has cancelled shows due to his health.

We might see group calls in the future, as there is a hidden string in the update that says: 'Couldn't switch between voice and video call because this feature isn't available in group call'. If you are on a video call, there will be a voice call icon in the middle of the screen.

WhatsApp has been adding new features to improve the user-experience of its social messenger service. If the other person accepts the request, then the audio call will automatically convert into video call. By introducing this feature, WhatsApp is basically aiming to save user's time when switching between video and voice call or the other way around. So it consume a lot of time of the users. 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. For instance, imagine you are on a voice call with your friend and decide to switch to video call. Once you tap the button, a request will be sent to the receiver.

WhatsApp has submitted a new updated version of their app through the Google Play Beta Program - meaning you can only get it on Android devices. The feature was first spotted by WABetaInfo and it seems, the messaging application is now only testing this feature, collecting feedback from the beta users to make it work better. The latest updated version of this update is 2.18.2 which brings mainly hidden features to the app. However, chances are it may come to the Android users very soon.
