WhatsApp Video Calling Not Working on iPhone or Android Phone? Tips to Fix the Issue
Check out the Internet
Video calling requires strong network and therefore ensure that it’s in top gear. The poor Internet connection might be the main culprit behind this issue.
Turn Off Cellular or Wi-Fi on your mobile device. Next, restart your device and then turn on the Internet connection.
On your iPhone, open Settings → Cellular/Wi-Fi and then turn it off. Now, turn off your device. Wait for sometime and then turn it back on.
On your Android device, head over to Settings app and then turn off Cellular/Wi-Fi. Next, turn off your device and wait for sometime. Then, restart it. Next up, turn on the Internet connection.
Update WhatsApp on your Device
It’s always better to keep apps updated to the latest version. Outdated version of an app seems to be always embroiled in trouble. For instance, it may crash randomly, run too slowly and even drain the battery of your device. Therefore, try updating WhatsApp to the latest version on your iOS device.
On your iPhone: Open App Store and select Updates. Then, locate WhatsApp and hit the Update button.
On your Android device: Launch Play Store and then tap on the menu button at the top right corner. Next, tap on My apps & games and then hit the Update button next to WhatsApp.
Once you have updated the app, you should be able to use video calling without any hiccups. But if the issue is still not fixed, move on to the next solution.
Delete and Reinstall WhatsApp from your iPhone or Android Phone
Drastic times call for drastic measures! Many a time, I have resolved stubborn issues just by deleting the app and reinstalling it. Agreed, it sounds crazy and many of you might even laugh at the idea, but it’s worth giving it a fresh start.
But before going for the kill, don’t forget to back up your entire chat history; on your iPhone: open WhatsApp → tap on Settings tab → Chats → Chat Backup.
On your Android device: Launch WhatsApp → tap on the menu button at the top right → Settings → Chats → Chat Backup.
To delete an app on your iPhone, just touch and hold on the app in question and then hit the X button when it starts wiggling. Tap on Delete in the popup to confirm.
On your Android device, Simply touch and hold on the app you want to delete. Tap on Uninstall in the popup and then tap on OK to confirm.
Update iOS/Android OS on your Mobile Device
No solution as yet? Don’t worry there is still one more way to resolve the problem.
On your iPhone:
Launch Settings app → General → Software Update → download and install the available update.
On your Android device:
Open Settings app → About device → Update → Check for Update → Download and Install the available update.
I’m sure the issue has been fixed after the software update on your device.

When Apple decides to change things, you can bet your wallet will feel it. And no changes in recent memory have proved more difficult on my finances than Apple’s decision to shift its entire laptop lineup to USB-C. The change was a welcome one, I just wish we had a bit of a period to segue, since many products still haven’t caught wind of the awesomeness that is USB-C. Personally, I have four USB-C ports, which is enough i/o for just about anyone. The problem isn’t in the number of ports, though, it’s in the requirement to buy dongles for…

Amazon thinks it has a solution to a freaky problem: Reports of Alexa-powered devices like Amazon Echo laughing unprompted.
The solution? Changing the prompt that needs to be spoken in order to solicit laughter from the wannabe human, according to an Amazon spokesman.
In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase “Alexa, laugh.” We are changing that phrase to be “Alexa, can you laugh?” which is less likely to have false positives, and we are disabling the short utterance “Alexa, laugh.” We are also changing Alexa’s response from simply laughter to “Sure, I can laugh” followed by laughter.
Perhaps that is all that is necessary. But if you’re reading this and you are still experiencing unprompted Alexa laughter, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
