WhatsApp rolls-out its voice calling feature on BlackBerry 10

After rolling out the voice calling feature on Android in March and on iOS in mid-April, WhatsApp has now rolled out its voice calling feature to all BlackBerry 10 users. The WhatsApp voice calling feature doesn’t work on cellular network, but only works on Wi-Fi and allow users to make VoIP calls to any part of the world.

In addition to voice calling feature, the new WhatsApp app update also brings new features like allowing users to search for messages, chats, and contacts with a dedicated new Search option on the chat list. Other features include location messages, new font and highlighting settings to match those used for BlackBerry OS 10.3 and users can now add unsaved contacts to their list.

Windows Phone users have to still wait for the voice calling feature, as the company has not said anything regarding the WhatsApp voice calling feature on Windows Phones.

The updated WhatsApp Messsenger app with voice calling feature is now available to download from BlackBerry World, and one thing to be noted here is that users using the beta release of WhatsApp will have to delete the beta version first from their device and download the new version.
