Have you been waiting to activate and use the free WhatsApp calling feature in your Android smartphone?
Well, here’s a step by step guide to make it work.
The developers have once again opened the beta program so that you could test the voice calling feature in Whatsapp. All you need to do is follow these simple steps.
1. Check the version number of your WhatsApp. Go to Settings -> Help -> About.
2. You need to be running version 2.11.561 or higher to use this feature. If your version is an older one, you need to update the app from the Google Play Store.
3. Open the Play Store app, type ‘WhatsApp Messenger’ in the search box, select the app and click on ‘Update’.
4. Go back to your app and check the version number again. Follow Step 1.
You’re just one step away from experiencing the feature!
How to Make or Receive Voice Calls in WhatsApp?
Once you have the latest version installed on your smartphone, anyone who has the voice calling activated should make a call to you. As soon as you receive the first incoming call, your WhatsApp user interface will change and a call icon will be added to your dashboard.
The easiest way to activate is to ask your friends who have this feature to call you via WhatsApp.
If you’re too embarrassed to ask someone to call you, you can also find users who are ready to call and activate voice calling for you here in this forum – http://www.reddit.com/r/whatsapp.
Try it out, have fun and spread the word!
