It's time you looked beyond Skype for group video calling
WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook Inc. and has 1.5 billion monthly active users globally of which about 200 million are from India, has begun rolling out group video calling on its iOS and Android apps. The service is free but currently available only to users who have signed up for WhatsApp’s beta program. To initiate a group video call, users have to first start a video call with an individual contact in a group. Once the call is accepted, a people icon will pop up at the top of the screen allowing users to up to add four people to the call. The screen gets split into four smaller screens to show every participant.
