New Instagram Update Will Have Video Calling Feature
Instagram is becoming hotter day by day as new updates are being made. The latest update which has just been announced is that Instagram will be having a video calling feature in the next update for both Android and iOS devices.
I am sure all Instagram users are pleased with this news as the new video calling feature allows you to make video calls with your followers.
Since Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram is owned by big time entrepreneur and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, I am not really surprised to see this video calling feature on Instagram as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp have video calling features already.
HOW INSTAGRAM VIDEO CALLING FEATURE WORKS
Just like WhatsApp video call, there is an icon that appears in the navigation bar in the chat, just like WhatsApp. You can see the screenshot below courtesy of Wabetainfo.
When in an active chat with a follower, the video calling icon will be visible for you to tap on if you desire to make a video call. However, the video calling can only be successful after the the other user has accepted the request to chat, if not the icon will not appear.
Instagram has hinted they are still developing the feature but is expected to be officially rolled out very soon both on Android and iOS devices.
