The WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone now has the feature built in, so if you’re utilizing the public release of the app, you’ll have to wait a little longer. The calling feature works just like it does on other platforms; simply tap the phone icon to make a call or tap the green button to accept the call while a call is coming in.
Unfortunately there is still no word on when WhatsApp will bring the feature to the rest of Windows Phone users, but it’ll probably be sooner rather than later. Until then, for those not using the beta version, there are plenty of VoIP apps still available on the platform — Skype, Viber, WeChat and LINE, to name a few.
Still, with over 800 million active monthly users on WhatsApp, it’ll be interesting to see how well the VoIP feature does when it does launch to the masses.
You can get WhatsApp on your Windows Phone using the QR code above to take part in the new feature upon its release. If you do have the beta, let us know what you think of the feature and how it works for you in the comments below.
