Before the new update to the application, WhatsApp had a feature of sending text messages along with image, audio and video files.

With its latest update, users can call their WhatsApp friends without any charges added. This new version of Whatsapp will allow users to save money they would normally spend on calling friends and relatives locally and internationally.The application uses the same data or Wi-Fi connection that the user’s phone is connected to and does not incur any extra charge for usage.

No international charges are incurred when using WhatsApp Free Call and Messenger application.
