WhatsApp Messenger updated to support free VoIP calls and more

WhatsApp Messenger has become one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet, and the latest update adds even more functionality to the service.

The update is built around the idea of sharing more and being even more connected, thanks to one of the largest new features to the service: Free VoIP calling. It works in the same way that Skype and some other services do, allowing WhatsApp users to initiate free calls to other WhatsApp users. One thing to note, though, is that WhatsApp says the new feature will be rolling out over the next few weeks, so even though the update itself is available now, the service might not be available just yet.

On top of that, WhatsApp Messenger now has access to iOS 8 Extensions, allowing users to share photos and more from other apps into WhatsApp Messenger. Here’s the full changelog:

• WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply. Note: WhatsApp Calling is rolling out slowly over the next several weeks.

• iOS 8 share extension: Share photos, videos, and links right to WhatsApp from other apps.

• Quick camera button in chats: Now you can capture photos and videos, or quickly choose a recent camera roll photo or video.

• Edit your contacts right from WhatsApp.

• Send multiple videos at once and crop and rotate videos before sending them.
