WhatsApp is now the most popular instant messaging platform and almost a year back, the company had announced voice calls. Voice calls was a good option for users to make free calls if you are connected to the internet. It is also rumored that WhatsApp will be bringing in video calls pretty soon. As of now there is no option to have video calls (single or group calls) officially on WhatsApp.
But here is a simple and free app called Booyah which brings in video calls to WhatsApp. The app is available for free on iOS and Android.
The app has a simple interface and once you have installed, it will have access to your WhatsApp contact list. The app will require you to access your photos/media/files, camera, microphone, Wi-Fi and have full network access. From the interface, you can simply add a person and make a video call. For this to be possible, the other person should also have WhatsApp and Booyah installed on their phones.
You can video chat with up to 12 people at the same time and the screen will change and fit itself accordingly, based on the number of people currently in the chat. You can also do 1 on 1 voice calls by closing your device while you chat.
Booyah promises HD quality video chat and for this, you need to have a good internet connection on your phone.
Booyah does not require any registration or log in and is completely free and offers security as well. So till the time WhatsApp officially brings in the video chat, Booyah should be good enough for video calls especially the group chats.[appbox googleplay com.rounds.booyah] [appbox appstore id1068430191]
