WhatsApp Starts Rolling Calling feature, See how to enable it

A reddit user recently uploaded some images which shows the much awaited calling feature of WhatsApp and the new updated UI. The new interface have individual calls, chats and contacts tabs at the top. The Calls tab shows the recent calls you made using WhatsApp, the Chat tab shows your recent chats and Contacts tab shows your WhatsApp contacts.
Update: The Calling feature was seen live in the latest version of this app in iOS and also in some android devices. Will soon reach to all android devices. Read about it here.  
Here is what that user wrote: 
Here are screenshots from the new updated UI and the new calling feature
Its like an invite thing, where a person with the call feature needs to "call" another person who wants to start using the feature. You need to get the apk from the website and not from the PlayStore.
This feature is not officially rolled out by WhatsApp, for now, the only way to get this feature is to download the latest build of WhatsApp from its website (and not from the Play Store) in your device running Android 4.4 or higher. Then you have to wait till someone calls you using WhatsApp and after that this feature will be activated in your device too.

One another reddit users, Tropiux, revealed how you can use this new calling feature without an invite. He wrote:
Go to terminal...insert this command with root start -n com.whatsapp/com.whatsapp.HomeActivity.
Your device should be rooted to run this command. You will have to do this every time you want to make a call to someone, this will enable the calling feature in his WhatsApp, and once he calls you, your app will be permanently enabled to make voice calls (The user should also be using the latest build in android 4.4 or higher).
