It has actually additionally been rumored and ended that this feature might begin rolling out to users by the end of 2014, yet we’re almost a month up and right into the new year. However, thanks to among our viewers, it’s now specific that the voice calling attribute has actually been allowed for some, and we can expect a bigger rollout some time quickly.
It’s been reported that the voice calling function gets activated for users when they get a WhatsApp telephone call from a different one participant that has the attribute enabled on their handset.
