The alternate way to make a whatsapp video call on android phone, you can even tap a chat window twice instead taping on phone icon and also you can rotate a phone in landscape/portrait mode for a full screen video. You can message anyone on the whatsapp while the video runs in the background by taping message icon on the screen and also you can switch between front and rear camera by taping camera icon on the left and you can mute the call by taping the mic icon on the right. Video calls also secured through end-to-end encryption.

The windows phone users download the latest version from the store as a beta version and update the app. The process for downloading is similar as android, here also we choose the contact and make call and make a message while video is running on the background and switch between the front and rear camera.
The user interface for whatsapp video call in iOS is slightly different to android and however features are more or less similar. But here we not able to make a message while the video is running on background.
