As you may know, WhatsApp has been testing free voice calling feature since a while that allows WhatsApp users to make free calls using mobile data or Wi-Fi. You can make voice calls only with your WhatsApp contacts without paying for the call charges. This features is not available officially yet but you can activate WhatsApp free calling option on Android right now by following a simple trick mentioned below. We’ve tried it with few contacts and it worked like a charm.
How to Get Free Calling Feature on WhatsApp for Android –
1. Update your WhatsApp app simply by installing the latest update. To do so, Download WhatsApp 2.11.552 and install the APK manually. You Don’t need to uninstall the app.
2. Once WhatsApp is updated, you need help of someone who already has WhatsApp calling feature activated on his/her phone. That’s because the calling functionality will be enabled only when you get a call from WhatsApp user who has calling enabled. (It’s not required to have his/her number saved, the person just needs your number to call you.)
3. Once you receive a call then WhatApp calling will be automatically enabled for you. In WhatsApp, you will then see a new section for calls and also the dialer icon for calling your WhatsApp contacts.
Note: The recipient should follow the same procedure in order to get a call from you.
It’s really easy, just try it out and share your views! 🙂
Update: Apparently, the above trick isn’t working anymore as the calling feature isn’t getting activated for users though they’re able to receive calls.
