After months of hide-and-seek, it seems like WhatsApp has finally pulled the trigger and enabled video calls on WhatsApp. I know WhatsApp has already made you wait enough, so I’d just straightaway show how to enable video calling on WhatsApp without further ado.
Even after some evil steps by WhatsApp, there’s no denying that it has become the de-facto messaging app across multiple platforms. WhatsApp has always stood by its no ad policy and it prides on its business model of one year free service, followed by a meager $1 per year.
But here’s the cherry on the cake: It’s common to see WhatsApp automatically renewing WhatsApp for some users after one year thus making WhatsApp potentially free for life for many users leaving people puzzled why WhatsApp does not expire even after one year?
These days, it’s a common phenomenon to watch developers build better versions of official apps, bringing in design and a lot of feature additions. This practice leads to a healthier ecosystem by giving end users the choice and contributing in openness of the platform.
But more recently, companies are becoming restricted and deciding to hammer down third-party apps, which are the bread and butter for many indie developers. Let’s have a look why these companies are going against them.
A couple of weeks ago, WhatsApp made it’s messaging service available right in your desktop browser, albeit with a lot of restrictions. For one, it doesn’t work on iOS, but WhatsApp is passing the blame on Apple citing iOS limitations.
On the other hand, WhatsApp on the web only works on Chrome, leaving loyal users of Firefox in the dust. Fortunately, We have found a workaround so you can use WhatsApp Web on Firefox.
The rumors we’ve been hearing for quite a while now have turned out to be true. WhatsApp officially took the wraps off of it’s web client and you can finally send and receive WhatsApp messages on your computer. We shall dive in to do a quick hands on of the new service.
