Needless to mention, like all WhatsApp communication, calls on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted. In this guide, let us see how to video call on WhatsApp from an Android, iPhone and iPad.

Since the WhatsApp call works on your mobile data, you don’t have to worry about the call charges levied by your service provider. So people commonly use this feature to make calls when they are abroad. This is also helpful to make calls if you are in a place where you don’t have a signal on your mobile network but you have a WiFi connection. You can make clear video calls on WhatsApp unless you have a strong WiFi connection. Also, Whatsapp provides details of the data spent and length of the call on your last video call in the calls log.
