The calling feature from the popular messaging app WhatsApp has been talked since long. Now recently, a Reddit user has released some screenshots which shows that WhatsApp is all set to bring in the calling feature for its Android App. The images posted by pradnesh07 shows that the app is planning to use an invitation system wherein one user having this feature puts a voice call to another WhatsApp user after which the called user would be able to make WhatsApp calls hence after. Moreover, in bringing the voice call feature, the app update also puts Material Design look to WhatsApp.

Users can currently get the update from the Google Play Store for which they need to get the apk file from WhatsApp by navigating the source link below. The file size is 18.52MB and would require Android 2.1 and higher and to get the calling feature you need to have a Android 4.4 KitKat and above version running your Android handset.

One more Reddit user – Tropiux has found out another way out to make use of the feature without the need for an invite. “Go to terminal…insert this command with root privileges…am start -n com.whatsapp/com.whatsapp.HomeActivity.” Users will have to follow each time to make a call. On getting enabled, you need to call someone using the latest app version which would activate the call feature on his/her handset and once after if the same person calls you back, the feature would get permanently enabled at your end too. Check out the screenshots.
