About 20 years ago, making international calls was very difficult. I had to use a land line and pay a lot of money.

But with the Internet, everything becomes connected. Especially with services like WhatsApp. Everyone can make international calls for free, as long as they also have an affordable data plan.
Here’s how to make international calls using WhatsApp (Android and iOS).
1. Find the WhatsApp contact you want to call.
2. In the upper right corner, you can see the audio and video call icon. Touch what you want.
3. After that, the call will start ringing. Then, users can switch to use audio or video at any time by touching the audio icon.
4. Users can mute themselves by touching the microphone button.
There are a few things that you should be aware of to make international WhatsApp calls. First, make sure you know the time difference in Jakarta and the country you are speaking to. They don’t allow you to call in the middle of the night or even early in the morning.
Ensure that the internet connection is stable and smooth. Connecting to Wi-Fi at home is better. Or, if you use a cellular carrier, make sure you have a data plan available. Because video calls consume a lot of your data.
