Its Finally here, Whatsapp has officially announced the introduction of the video-calling feature on all other SmartPhone platforms. Earlier some weeks ago it was only available for beta-testers. But now it's available for everyone to use.

Whatsapp announced this earlier on their blog: "We’re introducing this feature because we know that sometimes voice and text just aren't enough. There’s no substitute for watching your grandchild take her first steps, or seeing your daughter’s face while she’s studying abroad."

How to make WhatsApp video-calls
Making a video call is just like making an audio call: open a call chat with the person you want to contact and then select the Video Call option. The other person, for now, will also need the beta version of the app installed, or else you'll just get an error message. Once the call is launched, you can see and hear your correspondent.

With a simple tap on the screen, you can access your messages, for example within the application, or return to the menu and use your smartphone for other purposes while continuing your call. Of course, if you do not keep the display of the call on the screen you can not see the caller but only hear the audio. To see him/her again, simply reopen the window.

I think this is a welcomed development by whatsapp after most of their rival like viber, imo, skype etc has already had their for a long time. Just simply head to playstore to get your update.
