One of the most widely used messaging apps, WhatsApp, is getting even better on iOS.
WhatsApp users on Android have enjoyed the ability to call their friends for a couple weeks now, and a new update will allow iOS users to join in on the fun. With feature parity, the Facebook-owned app is further making its claim as the only messaging service you need. The need for messaging and minutes from your wireless carrier is becoming even more moot.
If you and your group of friends use WhatsApp to communicate, the newest feature gives you yet another reason to stick with the service. The only downside (if you can call it that) is that WhatsApp Calling will roll out over the next several weeks, which means it won’t be immediately available to all of your friends; you can download the update right now, but the feature itself will take a little longer to be available.
In addition to calling, WhatsApp was also updated to include support for iOS 8 share extensions, a quick camera button in chats and the ability to edit your contacts right from the app. Head on over to the App Store now to get the latest update.
