WhatsApp video calling is finally here

The long-awaited video-calling feature in WhatsApp has finally arrived.

The Facebook-owned company announced you will now be able to connect with friends and family all over the world, regardless of what calling plan they have.

The feature is easy to use too. Open a new chat and select the phone icon.

Pick either voice or video.

With over 1 billion monthly users worldwide, it will give its competitors, FaceTime, Skype, and Google Duo, a run for their money.
