The most eagerly-anticipated Android feature we've seen in a long time is now rolling out everywhere - without any WhatsApp call invitation!

How to enable WhatsApp calls?

The first & foremost thing is that you have to make sure that your android phone has atleast Android v2.1 as that is the minimum requirement for enabling the WhatsApp call feature. Also make sure you have the latest version of WhatsApp from the Google Play Store.

The WhatsApp call feature is very simple to activate! The latest version of WhatsApp, v2.12.19 is the one you've been waiting for! it does not require someone with WhatsApp call feature already activated to call you or you don't need any invitation for it! All you need to do is hit up the WhatsApp website and download WhatsApp v2.12.19. You have to enable the Unknown Sources in your device's security settings. Then all you have to do is install the downloaded app (the apk file) and you'll see the three tab view below with the ability to make and receive WhatsApp calls.


If you are not aware of the Unknown sources.. Follow these steps:

  • Update your WhatsApp app to at least v2.11.561 (through Play Store) 
  • Enable Unknown Sources in your Security settings. On stock Android, you'll find this option at Settings > Security > Unknown sources.
  • Get someone who already has the WhatsApp voice calling feature enabled to call you!
  • Once you answer the call, three tabs will appear at the top of your WhatsApp interface - calls, chats and contacts. This means voice calling has been enabled in your WhatsApp!

The calls tab will show a detailed call log and in any chat with a WhatsApp contact you'll find the dialer icon at the top right side so you can make calls directly through WhatsApp and need not use the regular dialer. We've tested this WhatsApp version with several Android phones and they all worked well! The voice quality was as good as a normal phone call in all the phones!


Alert!!

Recently we have seen in the Times of India News that the WhatsApp call feature may be banned soon.. So let's keep our fingers crossed and hope it will not get banned! Till then let's enjoy with what we have!

We would love to hear your opinions about WhatsApp call feature in the discussion section! See you!
