Voice Calls now available on WhatsApp for iOS

When its calling feature hit Android gadgets a couple weeks ago, WhatsApp founder Brian Acton said the tool would make its way to iOS soon enough. Well, today’s the day.

WhatsApp calling is rolling out to folks wielding Apple devices, allowing you to chat with friends and family around the world. The feature uses WiFi rather than a data connection, so you won’t have to worry. While the new version of the app is already available at iTunes, the release notes warn that the calling feature is rolling out slowly, so it may not be available for you immediately.

Other things are also new in this version of WhatsApp for iPhone. For example, you can now edit your contacts from within WhatsApp, or send multiple videos at once as well as crop and rotate them before sending. A quick camera button shows up in chats letting you easily capture a photo or video, or choose one from the Camera Roll. Finally, WhatsApp gains an iOS 8 share extension, allowing you to share stuff to it from other apps.

Download and enjoy.
