How to make voice and video calls in WhatsApp for Android

To make a voice call on WhatsApp for Android, follow these steps:

  1. Open the application and select the contact or group you want to call.
  2. On the chat screen, find the phone icon in the top right corner and tap on it. It may be hidden in a dropdown menu, so you might have to look for it among other options.
  3. After tapping on the phone icon, a call window will appear where you can choose whether you want to make a voice call or a video call. Select voice call.
  4. Wait for your contact to answer the call. Once they answer, you will hear their voice and see their photo and name on the screen.
  5. You can use additional features during the call, such as switching between speaker and headphones, switching to loudspeaker mode, muting the microphone, and more, using the corresponding icons.

To end the call, tap on the "End Call" icon on the phone screen.


To make a video call in WhatsApp for Android, you will need to do the same thing with one difference - choose the video camera icon instead of the phone icon.

To end the call, click on the "End call" icon.

Note that to make a voice or video call on WhatsApp, you need an internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile internet). In addition, your contact or group participant must also have the WhatsApp application installed and be connected to the internet.

Additional settings for voice and video calls in WhatsApp for Android

These include:

  1. Automatic reply. You can enable automatic reply to voice calls to inform your contacts that you are temporarily unavailable. To do this, select "Settings" - "Notifications" - "Auto-reply".
  2. Speakerphone. During a voice call, you can enable speakerphone to make the sound louder. To do this, click on the speakerphone icon.
  3. Mute. You can mute the sound on your smartphone so that the call does not distract you during an important event. To do this, click on "Volume" on the side panel of the phone and decrease the volume to the minimum value.
  4. Call recording. WhatsApp does not have a built-in call recording feature, but you can download third-party apps for this. However, in some countries, call recording may be illegal without the consent of both parties.

Note that the functionality of voice and video calls in WhatsApp may vary slightly depending on the app version and device you are using.
