WhatsApp is expected to attain voice calling support soon

The Mobile World Congress which took place earlier this year entailed a pertinent announcement from WhatsApp’s CEO, Jan Koum. He claimed that WhatsApp will be adding voice services to its list of features soon. It seems that voice calling functionality will now be featured on WhatsApp. Those who have been volunteering at the Hindi language translation of Whatsapp received new requests for translations in this week.

The new icons including Hang up, Outgoing call, Incoming call etc all show that voice calling functionality is soon to come. This prospect of translation seems to be the last step towards checking that the feature suits users.

At the Mobile World Congress, Koum claimed that voice services would first be included on Android and iOS, as soon as this spring and this will follow Windows Phone and finally the Blackberry. Therefore the users of the Windows Phone will have to wait their turn to experience the upgraded WhatsApp. Currently Whatsapp reigns the space of instant messaging but it will soon also compete with Skype and Viber for its upcoming voice calling service.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
