Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) subsidiary WhatsApp is planning to add voice calling during Q2 2014. This announcement was made by WhatsApp founder Jan Koum. This will likely be the first major change that we see following Facebook’s $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp.
This feature is not exactly unique though. It is already offered through apps like Skype, Line, and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). WhatsApp founder Jan Koum acknowledged the importance of maintaining features that are comparative to rivals though.
