Yes, free calls did exist through apps like Viber and Line but not many people have such apps. Whatsapp has just done us, especially Kenyan hustlers, a great service. Is it just me or sometimes you put credit worth 500/= and the next day or hour you’re down to 50/= or even ZERO!!? This may not be an end to the mysterious disappearance of credit but it sure saves a person the hustle of topping up too often.
How to Enable WhatsApp Calling Feature
You may follow this procedure to get WhatsApp calling feature to your WhatsApp.
Step 1: The very first thing is to get latest version of WhatsApp. If you already have WhatsApp installed, please upgrade it to the latest version.
Step 2: This feature requires an invite so ask any of your friend who has already got this feature activated on its WhatsApp to call you.
Step 3: Restart your phone and you must have WhatsApp calling feature activated as well. Enjoy.
Cons of The WhatsApp Calling Feature
A few things they didn’t tell you about this feature.
a) You can’t reach the person if they’re offline.
b) If you’re net is slow, the call is a waste of time because it won’t be clear.
c) It’s just like texting, it eats your bundles even as a caller recipient.
I’m not the one to call them demerits but hey, just saying it as it is.
No matter these cons, Thank You Whatsapp!! The feature is awesome!! Now looking forward to the video calls.
