If you own a smartphone, then there is a pretty high chance that you have installed the WhatsApp application on it. A few months ago, there were over 800 million active monthly users and since then, we’re pretty sure that many more people have installed this application on their smartphones, mostly because of the new Voice Calling feature.
The Voice Calling feature has been expected for quite a while, but we believe it was worth the wait. Currently, this feature is available for smartphones that run on Android, iOS, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone and it has received a lot of tweaks lately. Right now, it seems that it’s using less data than before.
According to some rumors, the developers of WhatsApp are going to bring the Video Calling feature to this application soon enough. If this will happen, then we’re pretty sure that the Video Calling feature will be firstly tested on Android OS, as this is the most popular mobile operating system out there.
