We were all expecting Windows Phone to be the third platform to get this feature but surprising enough, BlackBerry 10 beat Windows Phone on that. BlackBerry has had this feature for a while but it was only available on beta until a few days ago.

The official release of WhatsApp v2.12.1.2 through BlackBerry World brings the voice calling feature to all users. This update also fixes a number of bugs that have been reported by BlackBerry users. Some of the improvements the update brings include search for individual messages, improved font scaling, custom ringtone selection and more.
