This application has seen a lot of upgrades since it first hit the markets. What about the latest development? Well, users with WhatsApp version 2.11.528 from the Play Store or 2.11.531 from WhatsApp website who have the caller icon on their app, can make calls to their friends and pass on the invite.
However, it was soon discovered that WhatsApp was testing this feature and some lucky users got accidental access to the same via a software upgrade.
But what's the harm in trying it again! Hence, follow the steps below and find out if you're able to get the WhatsApp calling feature on your Android phone.
Step 1: This is an invite based feature. Hence make sure one of your friends have got the WhatsApp calling feature in their Android phone.
Step 2: The chat feature goes live on your phone only after someone makes a call to you from their WhatsApp call enabled Android phone.
Step 3: After the feature is enabled you will see three distinct tabs for 'Call', 'Chat' and 'Contacts' appearing on the home screen of your WhatsApp.
If you are unable to receive the call or your device isn't displaying the tabs as instructed then probably your device is outdated or you should update your Whatsapp from the Google Play Store.
Step 4: Thereafter, you can directly call anyone from your Whatsapp contact list or from your contacts.
Step 5: Best thing, its Free!
