How to enable WhatsApp voice calls
You will need to have Unknown Sources enabled in your device’s security settings first though (don’t forget to turn Unknown Sources off again afterwards), but then all you do is install the downloaded app and you’ll see the three tab view below with the ability to make and receive WhatsApp calls.
If you’re not so keen on allowing Unknown Sources, you can still use the old route with the latest version in the Play Store, which is currently v2.12.5 or latest. The process remains the same as before:
- Update your WhatsApp app to at least v2.11.561.
- Get someone who already has the WhatsApp voice calling feature enabled to call you.
- Once you answer the call, three tabs will appear at the top of your WhatsApp interface – calls, chats and contacts. This means voice calling has been enabled.
The calls tab will show you a detailed call log and in any chat with a WhatsApp contact you’ll find that the dialer icon at the top now makes calls direct via WhatsApp and not the regular dialer. We’ve tested the latest version with several phones and they all worked first try, so it looks like the wait is finally over and WhatsApp voice calls are here for everyone.
Have you got the WhatsApp feature feature yet? Will you now turn to WhatsApp as your default dialer? 😀
