Free WhatsApp voice calling: How to get it on your phone in 2 easy steps
The voice calling feature that WhatsApp had been teasing and testing for some time now is finally going mainstream. The WhatsApp voice calling feature is enabled in the latest build of the WhatsApp Messenger that is now available for download for Android devices on Google Play (version 2.11.561).
But WhatsApp isn't activating voice calling feature right away. Desirous users will still need an invite, in the form of a WhatsApp call from any other WhatsApp user who has the feature activated on his/her app.
The steps involved fairly simple:
1. Go to Google Play and download/update the free WhatsApp Messenger app.
2. Ask any other WhatsApp user you know with the voice calling feature activated to call you via WhatsApp.
Following the call you should find the WhatsApp voice calling feature activated on your phone. You will now see a new 'Calls' tab to the left of the Chats and Contacts tab on the WhatsApp home screen.
While there have been unofficial APKs floating around promising the feature, but it is advisable that users install the app from Google Play or the official WhatsApp website.
