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!

Method 1:

Follow this steps to activate Whatsapp voice calling feature on any Android device.

  • Download latest Whatsapp app from here.
  • Uninstall older version and reinstall downloaded whatsapp.
  • Say your friend who get Whatsapp calling feture invitation and you're done!

Method 2:

After installing whatsapp, Open Root Explorer or Es file Explorer and Go to Data > Data > com.whatsapp > shared_prefs > com.whatsapp_preferences.xml
Edit the above file and Add these two lines after <map> -

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

What's the name of that file: _has_set_default_values.xml, com.whatsapp_preferences.xml or RegisterPhone.xml?
I am a little noob with this... sorry.

After making the changes and restarting Whatsapp after force stop, the xml automatically replaces itself with the original one.
I mean my changes (adding those 2 lines) are lost everytime..

Let the server start invitation again.. You will be on calling in no time... No need for mods just keep latest version installed..
After activation tabs appear automatically
