Is Instagram Readying Video-Calling Feature?

Is Instagram Readying Video-Calling Feature?”

Instagram is trying to offer everything you need to be in touch with your friends in future. A report from TechCrunch (spotted by a Twitter user-Ishan Agarwal), cites multiple references for voice and video calls in the latest Instagram for Android alpha release as well on Instagram Direct Android app. "Files buried in Instagram and the Instagram Direct standalone app's Android Application Packages (APKs) are files and icons for "Call" and 'Video Call, '" it writes.

It was reported back in January that the Instagram team was developing a video calling feature which may or may not be rolled out.

"Adding voice and video calls would make Instagram a better alternative to the chat Snapchat, which first launched the video calling in 2014, and improved the function in 2016". It's surprising that Instagram hasn't launched these features already.

Instagram is meant to be a Window into the lives of your friend. The social media app has seen many changes from photo sharing to Direct messages to stories.
