New Delhi : Mobile messaging service WhatsApp has reportedly begun the testing phase of its much awaited feature of voice calling to users in India through invitation only. The feature is restricted to Android users with the latest version 2.11.508 of the messenger app.

Certain reddit users have now started posting screenshots of a beta build of WhatsApp’s Android app with the voice calling feature. Reddit user pradnesh07 who posted the screenshots, has further explained that the apps works fine when being used across different countries, varied ROMs or Operating systems.

The new feature is accessible to users only after they receive an invitation from others using the feature. So even if you download the latest version of the app on your device, you will have to wait for someone to roll it out to you or call you. A reddit user first reported the new voice calling feature on his Nexus 5 device running the latest Android lollipop OS.

However, the roll-out is extremely limited and that is why you may have not even got a hint of any such build. To get the beta build to function, you need to forward the same to the contact you wish to make voice calls to. Once done, you can start using the voice calling feature.

Do keep in mind though, that the invite sending procedure requires quite a workaround. Also, since its a beta release, and is surprisingly extremely limited in release, we would advise you to install it on a spare phone so as to protect your chat histories and other app data.

This comes just days after India’s Hike launched voice calling feature on its updated IM app. Hike has rolled out the updated version on the Android app for the time being, and it plans to roll-out the same on iOS and Windows platform soon.
