Whatsapp's voice calling feature roll out starts

Whatsapp's ever leaked and much awaited calling feature has started rolling out in a phased manner to the users in the wild. First reported by Reddit user pradnesh07 on the forum, the feature seems to follow the basic invite to activate method. It was also reported that this seems to work only for the users on Lollipop and not others as yet. It requires the latest APK from the website since the Play Store does not seem to be updated with the latest as yet.
You may be in luck if you are rooted. You could try this nifty terminal trick. However, you need to run this each time you need to make use of the calling feature.
There are no details available on the call quality and the actual usage report yet. We shall keep you posted as soon as we have more details.
