WhatsApp Still Working on its Voice Calling Feature
Published By : 23 Feb 2015 | Published By : QYRESEARCH
In a recent update WhatsApp rolled out its awaited voice calling services to a few more users. The WhatsApp version 2.11.528, which was released on February 19, gave access to free voice calling to a few users. These application users were able to activate the feature for other people using WhatsApp on Androids by just making a call to them.
The application has made no official announcement regarding this new service and there has been no mention of it on Google Play either so far. WhatsApp has only released this feature in short phases with Android operating system. For now the service has been stopped. The iOS users still haven’t received the voice calling feature although the button once appeared by a short while.
WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application in the world with more than 700 million active users every month. To hold on to its share and to expand it further the company is trying to do everything it can by offering features in the cutthroat world of messaging applications. Other than free voice calling, WhatsApp also launched a Web version for computer users that seems to be working smoothly. The other messing applications such as iMessage, Line, and Viber had these features right from the start. However, WhatsApp is slowing trying to eat into their markets as well.
Facebook acquired WhatsApp a year ago. Jan Koum, WhatsApp CEO had reported earlier that the application would have the voice calling by Q1 2015. With the ongoing efforts, the company seems to be in tandem with this promise.
