Users are now reporting that an update to the WhatsApp application on Android is officially bringing the voice calling feature to their devices. This comes after WhatsApp made it available to a select bunch of users a couple of months ago.
The feature will be apparently rolled out to all users in the form of an update directly through the Play Store. It’s likely that the update is already rolling out to the devices as we speak.
Voice calling is said to be baked into the version 2.12.19 of WhatsApp, so be on the lookout for an update if you use the IM app. The feature works just as advertised and will let you make calls using the internet connection to your contacts. This will save up on your precious voice minutes, although it will take some amount of mobile data if you’re using it outside the reach of a WiFi network.
Are you seeing the feature on your devices yet? Let us know in the comments section below. You can try downloading the app from the Play Store if you haven’t yet.
