  1. Open WhatsApp Web and scan your phone to login to your account.

  5. Just share the video call link with others on WhatsApp.
  6. To create a room with a specific contact or group, you must open that chat window. Then hit the attachment icon and click Room, which is the last icon in the list. And voila!

All you have to do is open your app, go to the window of the contact you would like to video call and then tap on the camera icon on the top right corner. Beware, do not do this in testing— we all know we have to check ourselves in the mirror before calling and then act casual!

What Makes Whatsapp The Best?

WhatsApp currently has the end to end encryption feature for its users which means that anything and everything sent on the app will be secure by default. So much so that even WhatsApp can not decipher your messages — the app offers 100% security to you and prioritises your safety.

In a world where data rights infringement are as common as anything, this is a great option to go for if you are looking for messaging apps. Keep in mind, Snapchat has suggested at various points that once a snap is taken, it is stored in their databases forever. Yikes!
