WhatsApp has finally integrated voice call functionality into the world’s most popular instant messaging app. The WhatsApp call feature finally looks to have been made available to anyone with the very latest version of the WhatsApp app. Here's how to get WhatsApp voice calls on your phone.

How to enable WhatsApp voice calls

The ability to activate voice calls on WhatsApp finally seems to be here for keeps. To get it, you need to update your WhatsApp app to minimum v2.11.561 via Google Play Store or the official WhatsApp website.

You’ll need to enable Unknown Sources in your Security settings first and get a call from someone you know that already has the WhatsApp voice calling feature enabled. You'll then see three tabs at the top of your WhatsApp interface: calls, chats and contacts.

The calls tab will show you a detailed call log and in any chat with a WhatsApp contact you'll find that the dialer icon at the top now makes calls direct via WhatsApp and not the regular dialer. We've tested the latest version with several phones and they all worked first try, so it looks like the wait is finally over and WhatsApp voice calls are here for everyone.
