Today's novelty will give greater value to the redesigned interface of calls under IP, based on what we know as Material Design, the design language that has been established on Android from Lollipop.
In the new beta channel update, WhatsApp is getting a new button, which allows users to quickly switch between voice call and video callwithout having to hang up the current call.
This change from audio to video can be rejected at any time by the recipient of the call if they wish. The curious thing about the novelty is that the chat app is testing a new feature that will allow you to directly mute a video.
