WhatsApp adds free voice call feature, Indian fans excited

When last month WhatsApp came out with calling feature for Android devices, iOS smartphone owners who have spent far bigger amount on their gleaming iPhones were up in arms. But they could do little.

Even though Android smartphone owners who might be using a handset worth just about Rs 4000 were able to access the free calling feature on their handsets, they were unable to do so despite owning handsets that might have cost them as much as Rs 60000 or even more.

Thankfully they were not made to wait for very long and the good news is that WhatsApp has finally launched the facility for Apple iPhone users as well.

whatsappNow people with iPhones will also be able to make free calls on their acquaintances who are using WhatsApp. According to the Apple itunes store, the latest iOS version of WhatsApp, version 2.12.1 brings voice-calling to the app. The itunes store description reads, “Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply. Note: WhatsApp Calling is rolling out slowly over the next several weeks.”

There are other interesting aspects of it too. The other interesting feature of this update is that WhatsApp is now finally making use of iOS 8’s Extensions, which means that you can now directly share a photo, video, links to WhatsApp from the Camera, Photos app in iOS.

iPhone owners will now be able to also edit contacts directly from WhatsApp itself. The other feature is the ability to send multiple videos and to crop and rotate the videos before sharing them. We also saw that you can add a caption to a video before sending them to a user. Earlier the App said that it had as many as 800 million active monthly users.
