The call back feature will show notifications for a missed call and the user will be able to dial back. There will be no need to open WhatsApp as the button will be placed in the notification pane, alongside the WhatsApp call notifications.

The voice mail feature will let users record voice mails that can play out for contacts. The voice mail feature will only show up when the user is already busy on a WhatsApp call.

Although, the messaging service currently has a document sharing feature which supports formats such as PDF, VCF, DOCX and DOCS it will soon support ZIP files. This will enable users to compress larger files and help decrease data usage.
