WhatsApp Messenger Beta for Windows Phone Gains VoIP Calling Feature
wappThe WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone now has the feature built in, so if you're utilizing the public release of the app, you'll have to wait a little longer. The calling feature works just like it does on other platforms; simply tap the phone icon to VoIP via ATA: is the most commonly used VoIP method right now. Using the ATA (analog telephone adaptor), you connect your regular telephone to your computer or Internet connection. The ATA is an analog-to-digital converter and it takes the analog signal from your phone and converts it into digital data and transmits it over the Internet so you are able to make VoIP calls. This is how Vonage and AT&T’s CallVantage handle VoIP calls. The ATA is free with their services. And using an ATA for VoIP is so simple that anyone can do it. Open the box, plug the cable from your phone into the ATA instead of the wall socket, and you’re ready to begin making VoIP calls. Depending on your computer, where you live, and what type of Internet connection you have, you may need to also install VoIP software onto your computer, but this shouldn’t be too difficult for most people.
