WhatsApp is one of the most used mobile applications out there, having more than 800 million active users. The application has received the Voice Calling feature a few months ago and since then we’ve noticed that a big wave of new people registered to use this awesome application.

It is good to know that the application has been bought by Facebook in February 2014 and since then we’ve noticed a lot of new changes, such as new features.
