WhatsApp may be the most popular cross-platform messaging service on theplanet but it took its sweet time in launching the voice calling feature, which probably resulted in WhatsApp losing some market share to rivals like Line, Viber, BBM and others. Finally WhatsApp flipped the switch on voice calling, though the feature is onlyavailable on Android and Tizen right now, but the company is working hard to bring it to other platforms as well.


It has already been confirmed that WhatsApp voice calling feature will be activated for iOS users in the near future. As the second most popular platform in the market today iOS will certainly be on top of WhatsApp’s list.

The Facebook-owned company confirmed in response to a query that it most certainly has plans to bring voice calls to its Windows Phone application. However WhatsApp didn’t confirm precisely when it’ll happen. Since the ball is now rolling on this feature, it probably wouldn’t take too much time, so you can expect to see the feature go live on Windows Phone soon.

No word as yet from WhatsApp whether it will turn its attention to BlackBerry as well, the platform that’s swapping third-place with Windows Phone ina number of markets around the globe.
