There may be lots of cross-platform messaging services available right now but WhatsApp is a clear market leader. It was one of the first services of its kind to work cross-platform and has since captured hundreds of millions of users around the world. Others have tried competing with it by offering features like voice and video calling. This is one area where WhatsApp has lagged. We’ve been hearing about WhatsApp voice calling for a while now and a new leak shows us just what this feature may look like.
The folks at Android World took apart the latest WhatsApp for Android update and claim to have extracted the layout for WhatsApp voice calling feature complete with text and the relevant image files. These files were then used to put together screenshots which should show what the feature would look it when it goes live.
It’s not entirely impossible to fake such screenshots so do keep an open mind when viewing these. While we know that soon enough the voice calling feature will be added to this cross-platform messaging application it can’t be independently confirmed as yet if this is what the feature will really look like.
There has been no peep out of WhatsApp on these screenshots, and it hasn’t even provided a timeframe in which we can expect voice calling to go live on the app. We’ll just have to wait and see when that happens.
