  • In a move aimed at enhancing the video calling experience for its users, popular messaging platform WhatsApp has introduced significant updates to its video calling feature. With the inclusion of new functionalities, users can now enjoy more interactive and engaging video calls with family, friends, and colleagues.

    One of the notable updates is the ability to share audio while screen sharing. This feature allows users to share not only what is happening on their screens but also the accompanying audio. This is particularly useful for those who wish to share videos, presentations, or any other content that requires sound.  This is convenient for long-distance chats, as users can share experiences over a call while viewing content together. 

    Another new update is the increase in the participant limit for video calls. Previously limited to a maximum of eight people, WhatsApp has now raised the bar to accommodate up to 32 participants in a single video call. This is particularly beneficial for group discussions, virtual meetings, or even catching up with large extended families. Zimbabweans can now connect with more people simultaneously, fostering stronger connections and enabling more inclusive conversations.

    Furthermore, WhatsApp has introduced a speaker spotlight tool for group video calls. This feature automatically highlights the active speaker during a group call, ensuring that everyone can easily identify who is speaking. With this tool, participants can follow the conversation more effortlessly, reducing confusion and improving overall communication flow. It helps to create a more dynamic and interactive environment during group video calls, making it easier to engage with one another.

    The updates to WhatsApp's video calling feature are available on various operating systems, including Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. Whether it's a PC, Mac, iPhone, or Android smartphone, users can take advantage of the improved video calling experience and stay connected with loved ones or collaborate with colleagues more effectively.

    As video calls continue to play a vital role in our daily lives, these updates from WhatsApp bring a breath of fresh air to the video calling experience. The ability to share audio while screen sharing, the increased participant limit, and the speaker spotlight tool all contribute to making video calls more engaging, efficient, and enjoyable. Zimbabweans can now look forward to more interactive conversations, seamless collaboration, and stronger connections through their WhatsApp video calls.
