APPLE iPhone users will be able to make voice calls using WhatsApp in a "couple of weeks".

APPLE iPhone users will be able to make voice calls using WhatsApp in a "couple of weeks", according to comments by WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton made the Facebook F8 developers conference in San Francisco, USA.

iPhone users will be able to make the calls using a technology called Voice over Internet Protocol, or VOIP. This means the calls are made over WiFi, 3G or 4G data – and don’t affect the number of minutes in your mobile phone plan.

iPhone users can already use VOIP calls using Apple's own FaceTime Audio system, which is available through the iMessage app.

The news comes after WhatsApp became the second Android app not built by Google to reach 1 billion downloads in the Play Store earlier this year.
