WhatsApp calling finally come to Windows Phone - latest update

WhatsApp calling finally come to Windows Phone - latest update
The wait has finally ended. WhatsApp calling is now available for Windows Phone users. WhatsApp has already introduced WhatsApp calling for Android and iOS users earlier this year, and Windows Phone users are the last to receive this update. Better late than never, though. 

WhatsApp calling is a VoIP service (Voice over Internet Protocol), where you can call any of your friends/family members who are in your WhatsApp contact list for free, without taking into account the country he resides. Data charges applies for this free WhatsApp calling. During WhatsApp call, if you receive a regular call, the WhatsApp call would run in background for a few seconds and will be disconnected automatically so that you can continue with your regular call. 

WhatsApp calling for Windows Phone user is available for version 2.12.60 and can be downloaded from Windows Store. After installing/updating to the latest WhatsApp version, you will find a calling button in the WhatsApp menu. 

You can see the call button along with other information when you tap on any contact. The screen looks like this while calling one of your WhatsApp contact.

There is a separate tab introduced too, to keep track of the WhatsApp calls you make/receive and you can find it along with Favorites and Chats. 

WhatsApp calling, when introduced received a high applause, however soon it was discovered to be a failure due to low internet speed. So, if you have a good quality internet connection/3G data pack, then only you will find WhatsApp calling a feature that you can use and get benefited. WhatsApp calling is being used mainly for the purpose of connecting to family members or friends that resides in other countries, since the data cost in that case is much cheaper than the normal call cost.
