WhatsApp is the most convenient and efficient social companion available on all modern smartphone platforms, including Google Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BB OS. Recently, they released a PC version of WhatsApp which is still in early stages. WhatsApp is a free service for a year and they don’t sell annoying ads, and if you’re an enthusiast WhatsApp user then you know that you have to buy their yearly subscription for just $0.99. If you don’t want to pay anything and want to enjoy the free service, then you have to change your mobile number everywhere. Just Kidding.
The things that I like most about WhatsApp is their simple interface with ZERO ads and the quality service they are offering but there is one thing that other social applications are capable of and that is voice calling. WhatsApp only lets you communicate with your friends and family via text. However, in the world of modern technology anything can be possible and the voice calling feature on WhatsApp is also a reality now. An XDA member shashanksetty found a way to enable voice calling feature and all you have to do is to follow the guide which I am going to share with you today. But there is a limitation and that is you need to enable this option on other devices which you are going to call on. If you’re successful in doing this then everything is good to go.
Before proceeding you need to check the following:
- A Rooted Android device
- WhatsApp v2.1.508 or higher
- The Terminal Emulator
How to enable voice calling feature on WhatsApp:
- Install WhatsApp on your device. Make sure you have the right version installed.
- Open Terminal Emulator in your Android device and type the following command.
su am start -n com.whatsapp/com.whatsapp.HomeActivity
And there you have it. Now, you can use WhatsApp to make voice calling. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments.
