WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton has revealed that the iOS version of the app will soon follow its Android counterpart in getting the voice calling feature.
After many months of rumors and speculation, WhatsApp finally begun the rollout of the voice calling feature for its Android app recently. However, users of the Facebook-owned messaging service on other platforms were left out. Now, WhatsApp co-founder, Brian Acton, has revealed that iPhone users will be the next to get voice calling in a few weeks.
Speaking to reporters at the Facebook F8 conference last week, Acton revealed that WhatsApp for iPhone will receive the voice calling feature within two weeks but immediately changed that time frame to several weeks without giving any clarification.
Although, a few users have claimed to have installed WhatsApp with voice calling on their jailbroken iPhones, there is no official way to get it for regular users. However, it is good to know that the iPhone users will get the feature after being left out from the WhatsApp Web rollout due to iOS' restrictions.
WhatsApp is available for nearly all mobile operating systems including Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Symbian but there's still no word about voice calling on these platforms yet.
