Telecom operators are already pissed off at the many apps eating up their revenue, and now WhatsApp is further fueling their agony by introducing the new voice-calling feature for iPhone. WhatsApp CEO did announce in the past that he'd introduce voice-calling in the app for Android and iOS versions, later followed by Blackberry and Microsoft. Now some sources have spotted a popup that seeks user's permission to use the microphone, hinting that voice-calling may be hitting the app sooner than expected. The popup is noticeable to only those people who have not already allowed the app access their device's microphone.


Whatsapp has had a huge role in brutally murdering the SMS (well, almost!), followed by voice-messages, and well, voice-calling could be the ultimate feature that would further cement the already 600-million-user-strong app's position as a must-have in smartphones. Nothing about this feature rolling out for Android has been mentioned anywhere yet.
@Ankita Katdare • 16 Sep, 2014 • 1 like The Android users for WhatsApp ought to be frowning on being left out. I think they should seriously consider launching a Desktop variant for WhatsApp. Thousands of users will bless the company.
@Gollapinni Karthik Sharma • 16 Sep, 2014 @Ankita Katdare : I agree with your point of launching Desktop application for whats app. That will be really great for people.
Even if android users do not get voice calling, but if everyone has the Desktop application frowning of android users will be not much.

But whatever whats app and viber are the best apps which cannot be replaced with another apps so soon.
