For all Android users using the WhatsApp application, there is a new calling feature. You no longer need an invitation to get the new feature. This isn’t available to everyone just yet. You can still download the app but it is not available to everyone. Once you download the app version 2.12.19, then you need to make sure “Unknown Sources” enable in your setting, after that download the app and install the update.
Once you installed the update, when you open up the app, there should be a new tab for the calls. The call tab also shows all missed, incoming and outgoing calls. While you are chatting with someone, you can initiate a call at the same time.
The CEO Jan Koum, said their goal is to help people stay in touch with each other wherever they are and also affordably.
This new feature is putting WhatsApp in competition with VolP apps such as Skype and Viber.
