It was back in April this year when rumors regarding the voice call support for WhatsApp started making rounds in the webosphere. However, the interesting voice calling feature, which is currently lacking in the WhatsApp at the moment might just be launched soon.
Moreover, at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum announced saying that its plans of adding voice services to its feature list during the second quarter. But sadly, the new voice calling aspect has not been enabled in the app until now.
The first alleged screenshots of the app showing its new user interface reveals the app enabled with an other language translation feature which will be displayed at the time a person receives a call via WhatsApp. This could be more than a proof for the voice calls integration in the WhatsApp.
Thus, rife rumors suggest that the free voice calling feature on the popular mobile messaging service WhatsApp is all set to launch for its 600 million active users of which 50 million active users belong to India alone.
However, the company has not spoken about the feature at the moment and regarding the availability of the it in India, it would be soon rather than later.
In the related news, WhatsApp has also released an update for Android Wear devices which will now fully support the non beta version. This enables the Android Wear users to read, reply and swipe away messages straight from their Android Wear smartwatch.
