A new ripple to the social media world after WhatsApp introduced its Web App. The new WhatsApp Voice Calling Feature.

Even though while the time several online reports were claiming that the new WhatsApp voice calling feature has been rolled out, there was no official announcement or confirmation from the company yet. But, it seems to be true that the latest version of WhatsApp lets you make free voice calls through your data.

The Indian Express has stated that several malwares and fake WhatsApp calling apps have appeared to take advantage of curious men.

But now, the latest official update of WhatsApp from Google Play itself has the new feature along with it, hopefully.
