WhatsApp voice calling feature, will soon be available on the mobile instant messaging app. The news has become stale news by now. There has been a report from WPcentral that shows the Hindi language translation request screenshots.
As a matter of fact that the Hindi translation requests are visibly accessible to those people who volunteer to carry out the translating for the messaging app. The screenshots of the requests in this image show the requests for translations for Outgoing call, Incoming call and Hang up.
The voice-calling service will be designed for iPhones as well as Android phones, most probably in this spring. The same will also be made available for Microsoft, Nokia and Blackberry phones.
Translations of the UI elements in general are one of the final steps of an app developing process. So, this means, the voice-calling feature is in the wings and can be expected sooner than later.
There were reports in late February that WhatsApp was on its way to introduce the new calling feature. However, it wasn’t known by then as to when the feature would actually be brought into effect for use for the members.
Shortly after been bought by Facebook for billions of dollars, there were reports that WhatsApp had a security flaw in the chat history for Android phones. The messaging app had promptly negated the claims.
Last month, WhatsApp had brought out an update for the Android phones where there was an option for hiding the ‘last seen’ notification along with status and profile photos via the privacy settings.
The feature is updated on the version 2.11.186 and is available on the Google Play Store. WhatsApp for Android also allows you to pay for your friend’s WhatsApp services.
