Here’s how to get WhatsApp voice calling: Download this update & we’ll call you

So the news today is that in some parts of the world WhatsApp has opened WhatsApp calling invites to everyone using Android. So like some of you, we now have the latest WhatsApp calling feature. We’re calling each other already at the office!

If you’re on Android, it’s not hard to get it too. Here’s how: Download the latest WhatsApp version – .561 on this page here and there you will see a form to enter your number so we can call you to enable the calling once the you have the new version installed.

Please note that the one in the Play Store is way behind (.528 or so), and so is the version on the WhatsApp website (.560). You will therefore need to download the one in the link provided.

If you’re having any problems, then let us know in the comments and we’ll see how we can help with the information we have.

Enjoy those WhatsApp bundles while they last!

  6. Never seen so many call me backs in one place before. This comment thread would be a spammer’s dream.

  7. I managed to test run it, finally. Here is what i have noticed after trying it out with a bunch of friends so far.
    1. When both of you are on wifi, the caller and the receiver, it works perfect. The audio quality is super fine more like viber and skype.
    2. When calling a person who is using whatsapp bundles (whilst you are on wifi/mobile data it looks as if they are not answering, kind of ignoring you gwaan. In fact they will picking their phones as normal as possible but there is no voice/sound content from either end. (i think whatsapp bundles don’t work with this thing, these MNO’s should have blocked that). This also happens if a person is calling you using Whatsapp bundles. No voice.
