Voice call coming to WhatsApp in Q2 2014

At Mobile World Congress today, CEO Jan Koum announced that WhatsApp will launch voice call in Q2 this year. The service will be available first on iOS and Android, with plans for Blackberry and Windows Phone. IP-based voice call is an “inevitable” feature for WhatsApp as voice service is offered in all its major competitors such as Skype, BBM, Line, Viber, WeChat and KakoTalk. WhatsApp also released some impressive numbers: it has 465 million monthly active users and 330 million daily users.
