WhatsApp Logo - Now Available For Windows Phone 8

WhatsApp Logo - Now Available For Windows Phone 8

WhatsApp rolled out voice calling features for Android but it was limited to that platform only. Now, after nearly two months of its availability for Android, the company has finally brought voice calling feature to to its iPhone app.

But, the feature will roll out to iOS users in phases, similar to what it did for Android. The WhatsApp voice calling for iPhone was leaked earlier and it was sure that the feature is coming but there was no specific time frame.

Recently, WhatsApp claimed that it has more than 800 million active users. Thus, this could be the reason for the roll out of the feature in phases. Earlier, the feature for Android was invite based but recently WhatsApp made it open for everyone on Android.

WhatsApp Voice Calling feature allows users to make a voice call to anyone from its WhatsApp contacts. Voice calling feature is a good edition to the instant messaging app but the company has a long way to go in order to match the voice quality of Skype and Viber.

Last month, WhatsApp announced the desktop client named WhatsApp Web which works for Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry OS and Nokia S60. iOS is still not supports for the web client.
