WhatsApp voice calling arrives on Windows phone

  • Published in Technology
Bengaluru: Windows Phone fans can now rejoice as WhatsApp is rolling out a new update that finally brings Voice over IP (VoIP) calling to the platform. Calling aside, WhatsApp decided to be generous and  added something new, with the ability to send audio files via chats.

The update tagged as version 2.12.60 will now let you place voice calls via your internet connection for free. WhatsApp will need an active Wi-Fi or data connection to deliver the same.
Voice calls aside, WhatsApp also adds the ability to send across audio files. The feature however, is limited to devices that have Windows Phone 8.1+ installed and nothing less.

There are also a number of tiny notable improvements overall and the updated app also shows an unread messages count in the header. Sharing across other apps also seems to have improved to an extent.
