Whatsapp Calling Finally Rolls Out For Windows Phone Users!

2:04 PM
       Hey right now, this(reference) game launched on Android, Let's download that ! It's probably out for iOS already, but what about my Windows Phone? Maybe we'll have to wait a couple of weeks, who knows we might even not receive that Game !
      This is probably the thing, what a Windows phone device owner has to suffer ! But recently at build 2015 keynote, Microsoft has given developers great tools to port their existing apps from both Android & iOS to Windows Phone without a lot of efforts. But will this change a thing? I don't know only time can let us know, because that's only the way Windows phone can survive the App gap! This in turn will remove the authenticity of a developer as he/she would rightaway port his/her App, without even thinking of creating something better with his/her existing app, while bringing it to Windows!

 Whatsapp Calling :  

     Earlier today, WhatsApp rolled out it's Calling feature to Windows phones users everywhere, which was previously rolled out in a private beta release, maybe they were ironing the bugs out! So, that's it..go snap out phones from your pockets and head over updates section in Windows store or click the link below :

 The official changelogs released by Whatsapp in the description of Windows store state that : 

  " WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to message and call friends and family, so you don’t have to pay for every message or call. "

    Is the call quality, Ok ? Yes, it is Good enough, but you really need a high speed connection to remove that, double voice lag which we currently also experience with Android & iOS !
