Now, Whatsapp has released the voice-calling feature for all Android users. To activate this feature, you’ll need version 2.11.561.Β from the Play Store or visit Whatsapp website for the version 2.12.7.

WhatsApp is the world’s most popular messaging app and it has a huge userbase of over 700 million monthly active users. If you ain’t an Android user, you will have to wait a bit longer.

Now after ensuring that you have the latest version, follow the step 1 given below.

    all those who cant find “com.whatsapp” folder
    there is two folder named “data”
    one is in sd card and 2nd is in system storage
    so for this trick you have to go in system storage not in sd card

    Call feature is enabled but call drops in a second or may be doesn’t connects. Is it because other person doesn’t have upgraded version?
    Secondly how can I send Invitation?
    Thanks.. πŸ™‚

    1. If the other person is not having this upgrade you can’t call him using this feature. Also the invitation system is not working anymore.
