Whatsapp is finally making its voice calling feature available to iOS users, not too long after rolling it out for Android users in late March.
While the popular feature is still 'in the works' for Windows phones, it is being rolled out for iOS users in a phased manner that will last several weeks.
As an added benefit, users of iOS 8 devices will be able to directly upload photos, videos and links direct to Whatsapp, thanks to the latter being updated with the iOS 8 sharing system.
While being a great tool for saving your precious calling minutes for interacting with your friends and loved ones, the voice calling feature also lets you interact with friends in other countries, thus eliminating the need to pay huge tariffs for international calls. However, you will still need to pay for the additional data consumed for making voice calls through Whatsapp.
While iPhone users are used to relying on iOS-specific features like iMesssage and FaceTime for free interactions, Whatsapp's new voice calling feature will ensure that iOS users will now be able to interact with friends using other platforms as well.
