One of the largest used cross platform instant messaging application for smartphones WhatsApp has once again sparked a flame of excitement among the users. Even after being bought by Facebook recently, the messaging app has been constantly pushing updates for the app for better user-experience and security purposes.
At the Mobile World Congress 2014, which took place a couple of weeks back, the company spoke about its plans to integrate voice calls with the app. The promise might soon materialize as the fresh screen shots of the app have appeared online touting the VoIP feature. The app design looks pretty much like the iOS 7's Phone app.
The new version of the messaging app will not be too different from the current version of WhatsApp, reported iPhoneItalia which also brought the images online. The VoIP feature appears to be on beta and has an easy layout for users. Calls can easily be initiated from an open chat. The software will seek the permission of the user to use the mobile device's microphone and upon dialing, it displays "WhatsApp Call" to distinguish it from usual phone calls over the network.
You also get a "Mute," "Speaker," and "Messages" option in the app page. Obviously the calls are free but requires 3G network or Wi-Fi connection according to iPhoneItalia.
