for rooted devices just use this:
thanks to @RVR
STEPS:-
1- Install the latest apk (Of course)
2- Open any root explorer (es file explorer preferred ) and navigate to /data/data/com.whatsapp/shared_prefs/com.whatsapp_preferences.xml
3- Add these 2 lines anywhere in the file but within the <map></map> and save

<boolean name="call" value="true" />
<string name="call_allowed">all</string>

4- Then go to Settings/Apps/Whatsapp and force stop it !
Open the app again (duh!)

You have now enabled calls !!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!!

but even with my contact having this option enable whatsapp keeps saying I have not internet connection
On a rooted phone, running KitKat, and 2.11.522, this does NOT work.

Stop giving out your numbers guys, whatsapp will release an official version with calls when they are ready and besides it is pure luck if you get calls to work and there is no guarantee it will stay working.

Get whatsapp voice calling feature instanly

Hello everyone, the above process is not working. If it works it justs shows a voice calling icon. You cant call with this method.

So to get instantly download the file from the attachment below and PM me. By downloading this latest apk of whatsapp you'll get voice calling feature and then when I call you, you will also get whatsapp. Its like invite only mode.

UPDATE : My quota is over. It seems we can invite only 3 persons.

Thanks :)

    The latest WhatsApp feature is generating a lot of duplicate threads on XDA, drowning other threads in the process. Many are also posted in the wrong section. We're closing down all invite threads to keep the clutter down to a minimum. Instead, please use The Consolidated WhatsApp Calling Thread as a consolidated thread for all discussions related to the WhatsApp calling feature and invites. Thank you!

    Hi folks,
    As we saw last days , a fellow guy here discovered a hidden activity in whatsapp that has calling feature.
    even if you didn't get an invitation for the feature you still can get this hidden activity and amaze your friends
    or maybe you will be a lucky 5.0 lollipop user that gets an invitation

    **This method is not like the old ones at all**
    **This method makes the calls activity your home of whatsapp forever**

    By editing AndroidManifest.xml of whatsapp

    Requirements:
    1. Latest Whatsapp apk
    2. ApkTool (HERE)
    3. Basic knowledge of decomipling
    4. Basic knowlegde of editing xml files
    5. notepad++

    Steps :
    1. Decompile whatsapp
    2. open AndroidManifest.xml
    3. search for :
      Code:
           <activity android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|screenSize|smallestScreenSize|uiMode" android:hardwareAccelerated="false" android:name="com.whatsapp.Main">
                 <intent-filter>
                      <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
                     <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
                      <category android:name="android.intent.category.MULTIWINDOW_LAUNCHER"/>
                  </intent-filter>
              </activity>
    4. change it to :
      Code:
      <activity android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|screenSize|smallestScreenSize|uiMode" android:hardwareAccelerated="false" android:name="com.whatsapp.Main"/>
    5. Then search for this line
      Code:
              <activity android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|screenSize|smallestScreenSize|uiMode" android:label="@string/app_name" android:launchMode="singleTask" android:name="com.whatsapp.HomeActivity" android:theme="@style/Theme.App.Home"/>
    6. change to :
      Code:
              <activity android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|screenSize|smallestScreenSize|uiMode" android:label="@string/app_name" android:launchMode="singleTask" android:name="com.whatsapp.HomeActivity" android:theme="@style/Theme.App.Home">
         <intent-filter>
                    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
                      <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
                      <category android:name="android.intent.category.MULTIWINDOW_LAUNCHER"/>
               </intent-filter>
           </activity>
    7. Now compile and sign
    8. Uninstall the old whatsapp
    9. Install the modified one
    10. Voila !
