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
Here is the method which enables calls in WhatsApp along with the contacts. Actually u can call :)

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

Put the above code in
Data/Data/com.whatsapp/shared_prefs/com.WhatsApp_prefs.XML

Clear whatsapp from recents
Start again

You will see this screen
Don't panic bcoz of empty contact list

Then goto chats tab select any of ur favourite contact
Tap on the phone symbol

After some time ur contacts list will be updated with the users who r using latest version of WhatsApp

In fact I tried all this with this ;)

Same problem here.
The newest version isn't on the Play Store, yet. Maybe we have to wait for v*.*.508 to be on Google Play, so our contacts can update. Maybe that way we will be able to call?
Maybe if someone here with the latest version can call me via WhatsApp and see if it works?

First force stop WhatsApp, then you have to open \data\data\com.whatsapp\shared-prefs\com.whatsapp_preferences.xml and put in following code between <map> and </map>:
<boolean name="call" value="true" />
<string name="call_allowed">all</string>

Open Terminal Emulator and put in following:
su
am start -n com.whatsapp/com.whatsapp.HomeActivity

I enabled the feature but the calls didn't go through. So its useless as of yet. Poly will tell you we tried calling each other and failed.

Yep, I think there is no chance yet to get this thing to work. I think we just have to wait.

And for version 512: The call section is still in, but have no idea how to enabel it. I tried it in the xml settings and
Code:
am start com.whatsapp/.CallLog
, but it opens and then closes again. There has to be another way to get the WhatsApp Calls Enabled for this version.
