While there are other apps like Google Duo or Hangouts, Houseparty, Skype and many more. We believe if you want to make a quick voice call or video call or even a group call, WhatsApp is one of the best options for this. However, the video calling option is not a new feature and WhatsApp added this back in the year 2018. The messaging app only allows 4 users at a time when it comes to group video calling.
