Apparently, the YouTube feature in WhatsApp is currently disabled and it would soon enable it from the server.

According to WABetaInfo, in the new Android update, WhatsApp is developing a new button that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to video call without stopping the voice call in progress.

The recipient, however, will be able to reject the upcoming video call if he or she wants.

“WhatsApp is also testing a feature that will allow directly mute a video,” the report added.

WhatsApp has over 200 million monthly active users in India and 1.2 billion users worldwide.
