WhatsApp rumored to be adding voice calls sometime soon

33 sec read

WhatsApp’s voice call feature might be even closer than you think, with some new hints suggesting that we’ll be able to make in-app calls very soon. WPCentral was tipped off by volunteers who translate Hindi languages, confirming that they’d received new translation requests that hint at the new feature. Three new strings – Hang up, Incoming call and Outgoing call – are, we’d say, pretty obvious clues that WhatsApp is finalising voice calling.

At the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum announced that the popular instant messaging client would soon be adding voice services to its feature list. Now it looks like the voice calling functionality is coming pretty soon. Those who volunteer with Hindi language translation of WhatsApp received new translation requests this week. The new strings – Hang upIncoming callOutgoing call – clearly indicate the upcoming voice calling functionality. The translation might be the last mile in finishing up the user experience.
