Now WhatsApp users can make calls to their contacts worldwide for free over a WiFi or 3G/4G connection.
A new Calls tab allows users to manage outgoing and incoming calls, and to call any online contact simply by clicking on their name. Contacts who do not respond receive a missed call alert.
Given the massive scale of WhatsApp’s user base over 600 million worldwide, the app is now also a significant alternative to mobile operators’ pay-as-you-go plans. In markets where plans with unlimited local calls have become the norm, the new feature could still be of interest as a way to stay in touch with contacts abroad, whether over WiFi or data networks.
WhatsApp, a subsidiary of Facebook (New owners of Whatsapp), is available for Android, iOS and as well as in a web version introduced at the start of this year. Access the web version of Whatsapp via : https://web.whatsapp.com
