WhatsApp-Voice-Calls-on-iOS

Under a month ago WhatsApp released free voice calls to their Android users. Now the Facebook-owned company have begun rolling out the feature to its iOS customers.

Similar to the launch on Android the change was first spotted by eager users, the update will not roll out to all Apple device users at once. The company have stated that the feature will become available over the next couple of weeks. That is a lot quicker than the Android deployment but you’ll still need some patience.

There are currently over 800 million monthly active users that use the WhatsApp service the feature has potential to upset a lot of carriers who have already seen their text message revenues ruined by the plethora of messaging apps available on the market.

The iOS update also features some more changes. Including support for the iOS 8 share extension which allows you to send photos, videos and other social related options to the WhatsApp application. You will be able to send multiple videos at once and can edit them on the fly too.

I have not personally used the application on my Sony Xperia Z3 but I have heard some great reviews. Let us know what you think of the App and the features it has in the comments below.
