Windows Phone users can finally stop cursing WhatsApp for not releasing the voice call feature for their devices as the application has now been updated with the new feature.
The iOS, Android and BB 10 counterparts of the Windows Phone users had long been enjoying the VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service for months now.
The latest version of the WhatApp Windows Phone app comes with build number 126.96.36.199 and brings the long awaited voice calling feature. However, if you are still stuck with an old version of the Windows Phone you are not going to get the latest VoIP service on the app.
Windows Phone team has made it clear that the voice calling feature is going to work only on the devices running Window Phone 8 or later. The new update also brings the option of sharing audio files through WhatsApp.
The audio file sharing option is already available in Android, iOS and BB 10 versions of the messaging app.
The voice calling feature of WhatsApp for Windows Phone had been in testing phase for a very long time. In fact, in April when the VoIP feature was released for Android, there were reports of the service being tested on the Windows Phone platform, but the application way longer than expected to get a ‘Tested OK’ stamp on it.
