How to enable WhatsApp voice calls:

The latest version of WhatsApp, v2.12.19 is the one you’ve been waiting for: it does not require someone with WhatsApp call feature already activated to call you. All you need to do is hit up the WhatsApp website and download v2.12.19.

You will need to have Unknown Sources enabled in your device’s security settings first though (don’t forget to turn Unknown Sources off again afterwards), but then all you do is install the downloaded app and you’ll see the three tab view below with the ability to make and receive WhatsApp calls.

If you’re not so keen on allowing Unknown Sources, you can still use the old route with the latest version in the Play Store, which is currently v2.12.5. The process remains the same as before:

Update your WhatsApp app to at least v2.11.561.

Enable Unknown Sources in your Security settings. On stock Android, you’ll find this option at Settings > Security > Unknown sources

Get someone who already has the WhatsApp voice calling feature enabled to call you.
Once you answer the call, three tabs will appear at the top of your WhatsApp interface – calls, chats and contacts. This means voice calling has been enabled.
