    I am like one of those people who abuses WhatsApp, and I had someone pestering me and asking if I got the update to
    voice-call feature since it came out for Android.

    So yesterday one of my bud called me through WhatsApp (Android, Galaxy Note 3) and I was able to answer the call. But nothing else happened,there was nothing coming out of the incall speaker and I had to end the call because it would be pointless having my phone to my ear sitting like an ***** not saying anything.
    However though, I updated a couple of apps today through Wi-fi, I usually do OTA. I decided to do WiFi- cause I was way beyond my data threshold limit.
    Then BHAM!
    There's a green phone icon, next to my pal's name on WhatsApp (in the chat window).I was like "eh?" so, I told my pestering friend who happens to be a girl (you know how they get) that I got the update and she went bat **** crazy (her brother lives in Ukraine and she has to call him, and at the rate in which carriers in India are offering international calls, having a feature which lets us call through the web for an application a large amount of people use is a relief)

    So I played around the feature a little bit and here are my impressions:

    1.Okay, the call feature is spotty.

    2.If you get a call from someone, most of the time you either hear 'static' or "he--- lll ----ooo ---www" and even if you manage to hear words rather than syllables, its like someone is speaking through a tube or a funnel.

    3.You call someone, you don't get a ring but beeps. Like, I dont know if the other end is actually busy or ringing it goes "beep-beeep-beeep" and after 30 seconds or so it just hang up automatically

    4.When you get a missed call, on WhatsApp you get a notification though, like an ordinary missed call should give you but when you click on the "View" button, nothing happens.

    These are things I found out, maybe its my update or phone.

    Just install bbm for calling. It's easily the best wi-fi calling experience.

    The fact that they are doing a "gradual rollout" is a sign they are having trouble with the feature

    BBM voice calls used to be great, they are good quality but not very reliable.

    It's OK, it's still glitchy and spotty I have had a few people call me and when I answer I hear nothing. my wife has a q10 and I have Z10 so the video calling via BBM is rock solid (as long as we both have wifi) and voice calling excellent too.

    I remember I was in Florida driving between ft Lauderdale and Orlando and had a US wifi Hotspot device and was using video and glympse I was amazed especially after my wife video called me and asked why I stopped and I told her I was at a rest stop lol
