It was the Reddit user Pradnesh Patil having id “pradnesh07” who posted the update about the WhatsApp free voice calling feature of WhatsApp. He posted some screenshots and videos too. The video that Patil uploaded shows that there will be a separate screen for the voice calling. And there will be separate screen for call logs and ongoing calls too.
Patil added that WhatsApp free voice calling feature will be available in the latest version of WhatsApp (2.11.508) only and this Updated version is not available in Android Play Store yet, but it is available only on the WhatsApp website. So, you can update your WhatsApp 2.11.505 to 2.11.508 Version from Official Website of WhatsApp. The voice calling feature in WhatsApp will not be available for all the users as WhatsApp is further testing this feature and WhatsApp has still not announced this feature.
And till Today, Only Lollipop Users have received this update and Voice Calling Interface. No update in KitKat 4.4.4 till yet.
According to the CEO of WhatsApp Jan Koum, the delay for the release of this feature was only because the developers were facing the technical hurdles.
Now with this new voice calling feature and the popularity of WhatsApp it will be a great competition for other mobile applications that are used for social networking such as Viber, We Chat and Line, as they have already allowed their users to make a voice call to their contacts. WhatsApp is the biggest messaging app in the world today with more than 700 million active users.
