It has been more than a year since WhatsApp announced the arrival of voice calls to the service. The reality is that it is still in its infancy and only Android users can officially access it. iOS users still have to wait, although if your device has the Jailbreak applied you are in luck, as there is a way to activate WhatsApp calls on iPhone through an add-on available on Cydia .
In the following lines we will explain, step by step, how to activate WhatsApp calls on any iPhone with Jailbreak . The method is based on installing a beta version of the app, downloading an additional package via Cydia and performing a couple more steps. It’s a pretty simple procedure and following the steps we should have no problem.
1.- We downloaded and installed the beta version of WhatsApp that we can download from here.
2.- We add the following repo to Cydia: http://apt.imokhles.com .
3.- We installed the package WhatsApp Call Enabler from Cydia and activated it in Settings.
4.- Access WhatsApp and send a message to + 91-96502-79319. Another option is to ask a friend who has activated the calls to call us to activate the service.
5.- The contact will make a call and the calling service will be fully active as they say in iDownloadblog.
As we can see the process is very very simple. In step 4 we must have a little patience, as it will be necessary for that person or a friend to activate the service through their call . Otherwise, we won’t be able to use the calls, although now that they’re available on Android it’s easy for any friend or acquaintance to make that call.
There is no denying that there is a great deal of interest in WhatsApp activating the call service once and for all. There are many people waiting for it and it seems that the company is taking it pretty slow. This may mean that they want everything to go well from the start, or simply that they are slow to develop. Either way, it looks like the global launch is pretty close and we’re seeing progress in that direction every day.
