WhatsApp’s new VoIP feature coming soon

Alleged screenshots of WhatsApp’s upcoming Voice over IP feature have surfaced, and they show an app that looks a lot like iOS 7’s Phone app.

The images come from iPhoneItalia, which also claims that besides the addition of VoIP, the new WhatsApp won’t be very different from the existing app.

The VoIP feature will allow WhatsApp users to make voice calls with their smartphones and tablets over Wi-Fi and cellular connections.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has been expected for weeks to introduce VoIP soon, but there’s still no official arrival date.

WhatsApp announced that it would soon add VoIP at MWC 2014, shortly after Facebook bought the company for $19 billion (about £11.4b, AU$21b).

As has been pointed out, the VoIP design seen in these alleged screenshots pretty closely resembles the Phone app in iOS 7, from the blurred background image to the circular, red end call button.

The other semi-big change supposedly coming in the next WhatsApp update is that the camera button to attach photos to messages will be located right above the keyboard instead of tucked away behind the “more” button. Despite the info, there’s still no word yet on when this update is coming.
