Android and iOS have already been treated to voice calling on WhatsApp and now it’s BlackBerry 10 users’ turn to experience the new feature. According to a report, the latest application is now available on the BB10 platform via the BlackBerry World store.

As you probably know, the feature has been under beta testing for BlackBerry 10 devices for quite a long time now. With its arrive on BB10, users will be able to make free WhatsApp voice calls over the internet to anyone around the globe. The new app is listed as version 2.12.1.2 on BlackBerry World. But it looks like the update isn’t live for everyone just yet.

We’re still seeing a previous version of the app which was last updated on April 8 and this could mean that the new feature is being gradually rolled out just like on the iPhone. CrackBerry notes that beta testers will have to uninstall the trial software in order to get the final release.
