Whats App has been trying to integrate voice call functionality into the world’s most popular instant messaging app since the start of March, with moderate success. But now the eagerly-awaited feature is available to anyone with the latest version of the app, complete with an invite from a person with voice calling already activated. We'll show you how to safely get WhatsApp voice calls on your phone.
How to enable WhatsApp voice calls
Important: Be warned that there is a WhatsApp calling scam doing the rounds. Read up, be wary and spread the word.
The ability to activate voice calls on WhatsApp finally seems to be here for keeps. To get it:
Update your WhatsApp app to at least v2.11.561. The official WhatsApp website now has v2.12.14.
Enable Unknown Sources in your Security settings. On stock Android, you'll find this option at Settings > Security > Unknown sources
Get someone who already has the WhatsApp voice calling feature enabled to call you.
Once you answer the call, three tabs will appear at the top of your WhatsApp interface - calls, chats and contacts. This means voice calling has been enabled.
The calls tab will show you a detailed call log and in any chat with a WhatsApp contact you'll find that the dialer icon at the top now makes calls direct via WhatsApp and not the regular dialer. We've tested the latest version with several phones and they all worked first try, so it looks like the wait is finally over and WhatsApp voice calls are here for everyone.
NB:I GOT MINE WHEN SOMEONE ALREADY HAVING IT CALLED ME.
