WhatsApp Messenger is a messaging service which began its service is 2009. During those humble beginnings, it only had the option to send and receive messages with the help of a network connection.

The application is reaching new peaks of popularity every year. According to a survey done in the middle of the year 2021, WhatsApp had nearly 2 Billion users. The population of Earth itself is 8 Billion. That means, nearly one fourth of the whole population use it almost on a daily basis.

WhatsApp also introduced a browser client known as WhatsApp Web. It can be used on any kind of browser on a desktop or a PC. In the beginning, it needed the phone to be connected to a network. After a while, they upgraded it and now it lets you access WhatsApp messages on browser which are saved on the cloud or backed up.

Not a day goes by without taking a peek at WhatsApp. Due to its easily understandable functionality, everyone uses it for domestic and commercial purposes.


Why WhatsApp calls showing on phone log?

This is what we call integrated call logs. What integrated call logs do, is they merge calls from all applications which allow you to make calls. Some examples include Skype, Teams and of course WhatsApp. All calls from these apps appear in your iPhone call log.

As you know, WhatsApp allows audio and video calls. If you have made calls with WhatsApp they are bound to appear in your iPhone call log. If you do an audio call, it will display the name of the person and “WhatsApp audio call” beneath it. And a video call would be displayed with a different icon, the name of the person and “WhatsApp video call” beneath it.

This is a problem only faced by iPhone users. Android users, have their calls separated. WhatsApp calls do not appear in the regular phone log. They might have a choice to integrate them, but certainly can turn it off. Android users are at an advantage, when this issue is in question.

People’s attempt to try and remove these from the call logs is a futile attempt. Because, either you would have to remove the application or log out of your account on the application. This will remove your account from the app, which makes it unusable.

Many people have raised this issue with WhatsApp and Apple, but there is no official fix.

You can check out the support pages of WhatsApp (faq.whatsapp.com) and Apple (https://discussions.apple.com/welcome) for updated discussions between the users and developers in the community. Also, try to ask the question as many times as possible on these communities. This will ensure that at least someone will try to take it up to the developers. Then, soon there will an option to disable integrated calls on iPhone.


How to Fix WhatsApp calls showing on iPhone log?

As I have mentioned before, there are no official fixes for these integrated calls. WhatsApp and Apple support pages have queries related to this issue, but there is no official answer to solve this problem.

It is also important to note that there are no options which can remove WhatsApp’s calls from your normal phone log. WhatsApp does not have an option for this in its settings and neither does Apple.

But if you are really annoyed by these integrated calls, there is one option. To delete the call logs from the iPhone call history.

  • Visit Phone.
  • Go to “Recents”.
  • Select the Edit button to the top right.
  • Then you can see red to the left all the call logs and you can delete what you do not want.

Currently, other than deleting the call logs there is no other option. Future calls that you do or receive through WhatsApp cannot be stopped from showing up on your normal call logs.
