It seems that WhatsApp is the application of the moment. It is in a continuous growth and currently has over 800 million monthly active users. After the developers released the Voice Calling feature, a lot of new users have installed the application on their smartphones, to hear the voices of their friends.
Lately, the developers have been releasing new WhatsApp versions almost daily. From what we’ve noticed, the WhatsApp developers are currently improving the Voice Calling feature, as many users reported that this feature doesn’t work as it should and the calls are either randomly ending or lagging.

WhatsApp 2.12.87: How to install it on an Android smartphone
WhatsApp v2.12.87 is currently in BETA and it can’t be found on the official Google Play Store.
