After not much wait, the team at WhatsApp has finally brought the Voice Calling feature to Windows Phone today via an update. The update 18 MB in size and numbered adds the said voice calling ability.

WhatsApp first rolled out its Voice calling feature officially on Android (Mar end) followed with iOS (Apr end) and now Windows Phone is getting it.
