TechHow to activate WhatsApp’s Call feature Rumours have been swirling around the internet that WhatsApp was going to release a Call feature on its Android app. The rumour is no longer a rumour. The feature does exist in the latest version of WhatsApp for Android, but you’ll need another user’s help to get it activated. First things first. Make sure that you have the latest version of the app on your Android phone. You’ll need version 2.11.561 in order to get the Call feature. Once your app is updated to the correct version, have another user who already has the feature activated on their device, give you a call via WhatsApp. Accept the call on your side and then end the call. Exit the app and then re-open it. You should now see three columns at the top, one of which should be a call option. Ta-da! You’re now able to make VoIP calls on WhatsApp. This feature appears to only be working on Android devices for now. If you have an older version of the app, you will not be able to make WhatsApp calls but you might be able to receive them.
