WhatsApp Video calling will be rolled out soon, in phased manner; users might get the update within few weeks. Unfortunately there are already malicious links popping up on WhatsApps inviting users to download video calling feature on WhatsApp.

If you get a link that reads ‘you are invited try WhatsApp video calling…’ avoid it, delete it. It is a scam with malicious link. This is not the first incident, in fact there was one more such activity – WhatsApp Gold that people fell in for, the app was presumed to offer exclusive access. The new message that you got or might get is also a scam avoid it.

How to download official Whatsapp Video calling feature

So how do you download the official Whatsapp video calling feature, well if the company has rolled out they will enable the same in the Whatsapp and all that users will need to do is update their WhatsApp app. In most cases the app will auto update as per your update settings on your mobile.

Whatsapp video call link is  a scam

Remember one thing WhatsApp will never send link within WhatsApp message to update / activate new feature. Also such malicious links that you get, usually come from a sender using WhatsApp, next time when you get any such link from any sender delete it; if the sender is unknown you probably would want to block them.
