How to Make Voice Calls on Signal on Android

This wikiHow teaches you how to make voice calls using the Signal Private Messenger app on Android. Signal is a free open source encrypted communication app that maintains your privacy. If the person you are calling also uses Signal, the call will be secured with end-to-end encryption that doesn't go through a central server. If the person isn't a Signal user, a standard call will be placed using your phone's default calling app.
