Free Voice Calls On WhatsApp and Free Lifetime Service Will Be Available Soon

The anticipated Whatsapp voice calling functionality could arrive sooner than expected.

You might be able to make free voice calls directly from Whatsapp in the very near future, according to some translator sources.

A tip received by WPCentral from volunteers who translate the Hindi language for the cross-platform messaging app, said they had received new translation requests directly relating to the voice calling feature.

The translation strings received include the phrases “Hang Up”, “Incoming Calls” and “Outgoing Call”.

This is a strong indication that Whatsapp is preparing to launch the feature imminently.

The mobile messaging service WhatsApp, acquired last week by Facebook for $19 billion, has said it will offer free voice calling for its 465 million users as early as April.

The WhatsApp voice calling service would “focus on simplicity,” said the company’s chief executive Jan Koum, at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, Spain. The service would first be released for the iPhone and the Android, followed by Microsoft’s Windows Phone, and some Blackberry and Nokia phones, reports the Wall Street Journal.
“We want to continue to have that minimalistic approach to the product,” Koum said. “We at WhatsApp want to get out of the way and let people communicate.”
WhatsApp will remain independent after its Facebook acquisition, Koum said, citing Instagram as an example after its acquisition by Facebook. Koum said he is aiming to grow WhatsApp service to one or two billion users.
