Is calling using WhatsApp considered wi-fi calling?

With my previous provider, many of my international calls were done via WhatsApp voice call application. Are such calls treated as ‘wi-fi calls’ by koodo? Do I need a special ‘wi-fi calling’ add-on?

It's not Wi-Fi calling. Wi-Fi calling looks no different than cellular calling (no separate app). You need a compatible device in order to activate Wi-Fi calling (there's no add on).

It's just a VoIP app that runs through data, be it cellular or WiFi.
