WhatsApp, the most succesfull messaging service on the market, has made it official: the calling feature is on. But there is only one problem, if you install the latest .apk file, the app makes a call, but no connection is actually made. Probably, this is a design that shows how the app will look when it will be ready. As on the market appear more and more VOIP apps, we are curious to see when WhatsApp will bring the calling feature.

If you are a WhatsApp user you know that making a call one-to-one from the chat box is possible by pressing the menu button. This will forward you to the cellular network for making the call. With the latest version, calling using data mobile is integrated into group chat boxes. You just select a person and tap on “call contact” and the calling starts. Like we mentioned,  calling an individ soon.zual person for now, it’s not possible, but we are sure that WhatsApp will launch this critical feature for a VOIP app pretty soon.

If you want to see the design of the latest update, install the .apk file from your Play Store. When you install it, make sure to tap on the “allow unknown sources” as to let the install make it’s thing. We are expecting for the whole update this month. Would you use it?
