    Really a long awaited feature http://www.gadgetsnow.com/tech-news/WhatsApp-starts-rolling-out-video-calling-feature/articleshow/54977047.cms
    Those were the days when BB10 was first to get calling feature of WhatsApp.
    Now as the EoL is set to 31 Dec 2016 seems WhtasApp for BB10 is not getting this feature.
    Let's hope the Android version 2.16.12 works on BB10 phones.
    Anyone tried it ?

    Hasn't that been available forever off and on? Thought we had that even in the BB10 app in beta form. Maybe that was just the calling feature.

    Why would they roll out video calling support for a platform they are dropping in two months? Why would they continue to support a platform the CEO of the manufacturer has abandoned?

    Well BB10 did get voice first. They are testing it first on smaller volumes, maybe that means BB10 still has a higher share than Windows Phone on their dashboard... lol.

    Tried Android whatsApp on my Z30 to test Video Call
    * Downloaded directly from WhatsApp
    * Authenticated manually by keying 6 digit code
    * App showed Google Play dependency error
    * App was looking for backup
    * App restarted almost 6 time
    * And then profile screen came
    * Tried call option Yes Video Call option was present
    * Called another Android phone Call materialized
    * Lag observed even after accepting call by recipient
    * Tried call from My phone call successful with lag
    * Third attempt and video call is working fine
    Clear lag observed but yes we can use Android WhatsApp for video calling on BB10 phones
    ** The native App is defunct now.
