There have been quite a lot amount of rumors pertaining to the introduction of voice calling feature to the popular social networking website WhatsApp. Last month, we brought you with some leaked icons showing up the possibility of existence of this feature. Now once again an Android focused website namely the Androidworld.nl has arrived with some leaked screenshot showing up the existence of the voice calling feature in WhatsApp. The feature is said to be currently in the testing phase which is currently being tested by the employees and is said to be soon included in the official build upon its announcement.
The above leaked screenshots show that the voice call dialing would get its own separate screen showing up the WhatsApp contacts, ongoing calls and call logs. One of the shots showing up the conversation window also shows some missed call icons and received calls. However, we would like you to take it with a grain of salt as confirming the authenticity of the screenshot is difficult at the moment and as such there is no such confirmation even from the company of its testing this feature through a beta build.
Earlier, while speaking to an industry conference in October, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum had said that the delay in launching this feature was due to some technical shortcomings in its implementation and said that the company is planning to bring it till the Q1 of 2015. Well, one thing is sure that competitors like WeChat, Line and Viber have to be very alert as this big giant is making its way into their arena.
