Whatsapp Voice Calling Arrives on Windows Phones, Finally
Android and iOS users have not only been enjoying Whatsapp voice calling for a while but also silently mocking other smartphone users who chose to stick with Windows Phones.
For some odd reason, Windows Phones did not get the feature until now although it was announced some time ago that the messaging service will introduce VOIP to the platform alongside BlackBerry OS soon.
All that has changed now, and Whatsapp voice calling has finally been added for Windows Phones through a recent update that was made to the app.
While the beta version was out for a while now but the general public has been given access to it only now.
For those of you who do not know, this means you can call your friends and family for free as long as you are connected to a Wi-Fi; standard data charges might apply otherwise.
Sadly, not all the phones that run Windows are going to be able to make use of the voice calling feature. It has been revealed that only those smartphones that have Windows Phone 8 or above will get it.
Another feature that has been added will now let the users send audio files to their friends and family who use Whatsapp.
The latest version of the app which includes Whatsapp voice calling is now available on the Windows Phone Store and takes around 17MB of space on your smartphone.
