WhatsApp is the biggest chat service in the world, with more than 1 billion users last year. WhatsApp shows the stability of chat services, and as it became so popular among the users, Facebook acquired it for $20 billion. It’s the biggest acquisition for Facebook, for now. Of course, we hope this acquisition will give WhatsApp a new and improved vision and even better services.
One of the things many of us have been waiting for is a calling feature. A few weeks ago, Android platform has gotten the calling feature, and now, the iPhone users got the same. In order to be able to use it, you need to update the WhatsApp to its latest version, which is 2.12.1.
As it’s written officially at the App Store:
WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messenger available for iPhone and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your 3G or Wi-Fi network (when available), so you can exchange messages with your friends and family with ease. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages. First year FREE! ($0.99 USD/year after).
What’s New In This Version:
- WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls using your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply. Note: WhatsApp Calling is rolling out slowly over the next several weeks.
- iOS 8 share extension: Share photos, videos, and links right to WhatsApp from other apps.
- Quick camera button in chats: Now you can capture photos and videos, or quickly choose a recent camera roll photo or video.
- Edit your contacts right from WhatsApp.
- Send multiple videos at once and crop and rotate videos before sending them.
- We hope that the stability of WhatsApp calling will be as good as their chat service. Our feedback is part of their improvement. So, it’s time to use a WhatsApp amazing feature that we have been waiting for! Get the update, so you can call your family and friends using your favorite app!
