Currently, Skype, WhatsApp and Snapchat calls are all banned in the UAE under the country’s Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) policy, with the only VoIP apps available to use in Dubai and the UAE are Botim and C’Me.
Both of these are paid for services offered by du and Etisalat respectively. Alternatively you can pay for a VPN to remove restrictions of your favourite app and make calls at your own risk. Google Hangouts and Skype for Business are also now available.
There’s good news as well, whatsapp ban may be lifted in the near future.
