WhatsApp appears to be setting up a "call via Skype" feature
For more than a year now, we've been hearing rumors about a voice call feature for the popular messaging app WhatsApp. Some of the rumors even pre-date Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp for $21 billion (that's right, with a b). Some other messaging apps, like Skype and BBM, already offer voice calling.

But based on a string of code, WhatsApp plans on offering a feature called "Call via Skype." Other features confirmed by the string include Call Mute, Call Hold, Call back, Call me in X minutes, Call back message, Call Via Skype, Call Notifications and Separate screen for call logs. We've also seen images that supposedly reveal what a phone call using WhatsApp will look like.

Also, a "Driving Mode" for WhatsApp also appears to be in the works. This would be akin to placing a Do Not Disturb sign on your phone while you are behind the steering wheel. Additionally, there might be a feature that will allow WhatsApp to read your messages to you while you are driving.


Thanks for the tip!
