As per the report by TechCrunch, the Instagram app includes a button icons for Voice Call and Video Call functionality. However, Instagram has not given any official confirmation regarding this new feature. But you can see the unreleased feature within the app code.
Also, XDA Developers said that the spotted some strings within the app which are directly defining the Video Chat feature. Back in January, the Video Call button was spotted while testing internally.
The strings clearly indicate that Instagram will have video chat option in its future update which will be similar to Snapchat. These strings will show a popup message of either the video chat has ended or the user has left the chat.
Earlier in December, Instagram has gained its alpha channel, where users can test the new feature. The alpha channel is just similar to WABetaInfo where the company first test the new feature. You can download and install alpha channel directly from here.
