Finally! The long awaited VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls feature on WhatsApp for Windows Phone has arrived via a latest update 2.12.60. The feature has made its entry in first in the private beta version of the app over a month ago, and now is released to the public. Along with this voice calling feature, WhatsApp also has added the ability to send mp3 files via the app, which was a lacking feature until now.
WhatsApp Calling: 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. Available on Windows Phone 8+.
You can now send audio files (available on Windows Phone 8.1+).
There is a new Calls tab added, obviously and the call button is the third at the bottom of a chat, just before the emoji icon. The app also now shows a count of total messages you have that are unread and the total calls that you have missed on the top. Other minor details include : the app icon in the App list which sported a green WhatsApp symbol now is merged along with the user’s theme color.
Try for yourself and let us know how the experience was, on a Windows Phone!
