WhatsApp-rival Telegram is reportedly getting video calling support and the feature is already rolled out in the latest beta version. As per a report by Android Police, Telegram users are required to download version 0.7 beta and above of the app to access the video calling feature. You can check App Center to get the latest beta release of Telegram.
Telegram had introduced voice calling a long time back but video calling is something that the platform hasn’t rolled out yet, despite Signal, another rival, offering both voice and video calling for quite some time. After you get the latest beta release of Telegram you will be able to video call only those people who are using version 0.7 beta of the app.
The interface is quite similar and comes with regular buttons like camera flip to switch between front and back camera, video mode on or off, mute and call disconnect button. Telegram is testing out the feature and there is no official date from Telegram yet as to when the feature will finally arrive for all users.
Recently, Telegram has started rolling out a new update for the app that is set to bring several new features for its users. The new release allows users to share files of up to 2GB of files and offers mini-thumbnails, group stats, profile videos, new photo editing features, improved People Nearby feature and more. Telegram already allowed users to share up to 1.5GB of files compared to the 16MB limit in WhatsApp. However, with the latest update users can now share up to 2GB of files, media, documents on the platform.
While video call is not yet there on Telegram, the app has something called Profile videos, which which allows users to use videos as their profile picture instead of usual still photos.
