WhatsApp voice calling finally rolls out to all Android users now: Confirmed
This is certainly one of the best news for Android smartphone users. WhatsApp may be all set to start the next gen war in the telecom sector. To be true, telecom operators must be feeling very concerned as this is going to deprive them of massive revenue in the next couple of years.
There are around 70 million active WhatsApp users and their number is going to skyrocket in the next couple of months.
Worldâ€™s leading mobile messaging service has just released a major update and that update now allows android users to make voice calls on the application. The feature, which had been teased for months, was introduced to select users earlier when the last update was rolled out a few weeks ago. However, it can now be availed by all, reported The Verge.
There is no denying the fact that the latest version of Whatsapp offers a cleaner layout with three tabs for Calls, Chats, and Contacts. Users have to just click the Calls tab and select a contact to chart talking. However, users must note that the feature will only allow them to make app-to-app voice calls, unlike previous version of Whatsapp where users could call contacts simply by switching to their smartphone’s regular mobile services. The update is available on Google Play Store and Whatsapp’s own site. The feature is expected to be rolled out to iOS users in a couple of weeks.
