People have been waiting for over a month for the WhatsApp calling update and double the amount were disappointed after trying multiple ways to update the app and experience the power of WhatsApp calling. WhatsApp had declared almost two months ago that the update will be rolled out soon and showed some signs and leaks towards the same. Since WhatsApp calling feature in now in Goa, things are going to change. Imagine what is going to happen to telecom service providers.
I personally tried so many ways to get the feature but was unable to manage it. Most of my colleagues, friends and followers approached me as to why they are unable to get the update. Now as everything has set in, I can say that we all in Goa and Qatar had to wait patiently as the feature was rolling out in stages region to region. If you would like to share about your experience with us (good features and bad ones too) about the feature, then do drop us a mail.
WhatsApp Messenger latest version needed to avail the feature of WhatsApp Calling is 2.12.5. If you have updated the app to that version then all you need is a call from someone who has it activated. It’s that simple now.
Just my first impression of the feature is that I did not like when I try to call or message a contact from WhatsApp, I do not get an option to make a normal call or send a normal message. I am directly directed to WhatsApp screens of the contact to either a call or a WhatsApp message.
