It has been a while since iOS and Android users have enjoyed the voice calling feature of WhatsApp, but unfortunately for Windows Phone users, they’re still in for a wait. Well the good news is that you guys are now one step closer to getting the feature as the WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone has finally gotten the feature.


Like we said this is only for those who are using WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone. If you’re still using the full version of the app, then you won’t be able to access that feature until the beta is released to the masses as a final version. However for those who are part of the WhatsApp beta testing program, you should be able to take the feature for a spin.

Unfortunately there is still no word on when WhatsApp will bring the feature to the rest of Windows Phone users, so we guess we’ll just have to wait. However with the feature popping up in the beta, it looks like WhatsApp is now ready to test it out. We’re hoping that it will come sooner rather than later, especially since when you consider that WhatsApp’s voice calling feature isn’t exactly new.

There are plenty of apps with that feature such as Skype, Viber, LINE, and Facebook Messenger, just to name a few. However WhatsApp does have the advantage in the sense that the messaging platform plays home to about 800 million active monthly users.
