WhatsApp rolls out voice-calling feature for Android users: Update
WhatsApp has more than 700 million users across the world. The way its fan base is going up, shows that the mobile messaging app is going to beat even Facebook as far as the number of active users are concerned.
The app has around 100 million active users in India. But the number is going to go up pretty soon as the company launches voice calling on Android devices. Though the test run is ongoing right now, very few people are able to get the invitation.
On the other hand scammsters are working overtime to exploit peopleâ€™s enthusiasm for the WhatsApp calling invite. Many people are making their mobile numbers public by calling on anyone and everyone to send them an invite. On almost every forum there is a large number of people who are asking others to send them invite if they have got them. Scammsters send virus in the guise of invitations.
In the meantime the delay is testing the nerves of WhatsApp users in the country. There are reasons to believe that developers are currently busy testing the calling feature by inviting a group of random users to test out the calling mode. This testing involved the amount of data used for a conventional VoIP call using WhatsApp via the internet, the call quality and the security involved while calling.
In the meantime if you are really eager to get the invite then ask some of your friends who have got the invite to call you from that number. After receiving a call, you will see three new tabs added to your WhatsApp feature, which lists out your chats, contacts, and voice calling group.
