Finally, WhatsApp arrived on iPhone, letting its users send messages from their devices or desktop computers.
Almost a year ago, the same feature was launched for Android users in January 2014, but at that time, it did not appear to iOS users due to the company’s concern about privacy. This feature allows people to send and receive messages via WhatsApp.
However, Skype is rolling out its new version for iPhone users. According to the reports, in this new version of WhatsApp, the voice calling feature has been refined so that users get a better experience. This improved voice calling feature of WhatsApp has around seven hundred million registered users thus making this app one of the popular and most downloaded messaging app across the globe.
This new feature of WhatsApp has given tough competition to some popular messaging apps like Skype, WeChat, and Viber, which offer almost similar features like WhatsApp. In such a competitive market, WhatsApp has successfully established itself as one of the leading instant messaging app keeping aside all other messaging apps. The voice calling feature of this app has given it immense popularity and worldwide acceptance.
The voice calling feature of WhatsApp has offered its users the ability to make voice calls at free of cost from any place in the world. To enable this feature in WhatsApp, you just need a trusted internet connection rather than your mobile phone’s voice minutes plan. However, WhatsApp has also marked that users cannot avail the voice calling feature immediately because it will be rolling out slowly in the next three to five weeks.
