It’s important to note that WhatsApp video call are still in beta, so they only work on Android, iOS or Windows Phone if the two call participants have the corresponding beta installed for their operating system.

Download WhatsApp Beta or install the APK:
The beta versions of WhatsApp are the test bench prior to the official launch of all the news, video calls included, and usually come weeks before the final version becomes official, so if you are not interested in testing the video conferences of WhatsApp all points to that in a couple of weeks they will reach the version of Google Play.

The problem is that you will have to log in and give permissions again, but it is a minor evil in exchange for getting video calls in WhatsApp.
If it does not solve everything, it means that you have not installed version 2.16.318 of the beta. To check it, go to WhatsApp Settings > Information and Help> Information.
