WhatsApp Calling Feature Now Available On Android But You Need A Friend To Get It
Back in March, WhatApp started rolling out voice calling functionality to Android users. Today, we’re proud to announce that because of you, WhatsApp has reached a milestone that no other mobile messaging service has achieved: 400 million monthly active users, with 100 million active users added in the last four months alone. When we say that you made this possible, we mean it. WhatsApp has just 50 employees, and most of us are engineers. We’re here because of all the people who share their WhatsApp stories with co-workers, friends, and loved ones – stories we love to hear.
Now the WhatsApp will ask you for your phone number on which they will send you the code to enter while setup then uploads a profile photo which is not compulsory , you can even set up a status about your life and happening and again which is not compulsory. Then the messenger will access your contacts the friends and family who are already on Whatsapp then you can easily talk and chat with them if you have WiFi and data available in your phone. The Whatsapp calls and messages are cheap comparing to another messenger currently available and also it is ad free.
WhatsApp doesn’t let you protect chats from snoopers, but third-party apps on Android will let you enable a password or PIN. From there, select Backup conversations, and then be sure to move the microSD card over to the new phone. You can’t, yet, but what you can do is send a video clip to your WhatsApp contacts. It comes as WhatsApp cracks down on users who access the service using third-party apps.
It’s not as bad as it might sound since you’ll immediately notice that your account has been disconnected if this ever happens to you (because WhatsApp can only be tied to one phone number at a time). Facebook already had a product for chatting, Messenger, when it acquired WhatsApp. Zuckerberg said that the purpose for Facebook’s Messenger is different than for WhatsApp. People use Messenger to communicate with their Facebook friends, while WhatsApp is more of a text-messaging replacement that people might use with those who aren’t their friends on social media. The world’s largest social network paid for WhatsApp mostly with equity, boosted by a rise in its stock price.
And I was used to call people straight from within the Whatsapp app (which I now hate because it automatically use the built in whatsapp function) which is now a big annoyance. So when I ditcht my Sony Xperia Z2 for my brand new Lumia 930 I was happy with the whatsapp app being ‘normal’ again. Those screenshots you’ve shared give me hope, but i’m guessing whatsapp won’t put that much effort in for windows. You’re throwing out a phone number into the public (thankfully not my personal phone) so you’d expect a bit of spam in return. There has been a little and we’ve had one person attempting to phone us for unbeknown reasons but basically, it’s easily ignored.
