WhatsApp Messenger is now becoming an all-purpose app for smartphones where will have more media exchanges than before. The betaversion of the iOS shows some UI changes where the calling button and recent call log tab is integrated very well for making texting and calling easier than before and yes free of cost too.

The call is similar to the calls you generally dial from your phone. But the application appends a string ‘WhatsApp Call’ with every call.
