WhatsApp for iPhone will soon be receiving the voice calling feature, a new report has claimed based on a screenshot of WhatsApp showing a message that allegedly hints at voice call feature.
WhatsApp is being used by as many as 600 million monthly active users and voice calling has been one of the most requested features of the app and with the feature already confirmed by WhatsApp CEO Jan Kuom, it won’t be long before you get to use the feature on Android and iPhone.
WhatsApp requires access to device’s microphone to send voice messages and record videos with sound. If you turn off microphone option under privacy settings for WhatsApp and then turn it on you will see the following message: “WhatsApp requires microphone access to send Voice Messages, record Videos with sound, make and receive Voice Calls.”
Those who have already turned on access to the microphone could turn it off and launch the app to see the message.
Such messages appearing on the app’s permissions indicate that voice calling on WhatsApp isn’t too far away.
