2.Go to recent and look for the contact you want to call as usual by name.

3.You may notice that the name of the contact say John will show their name and Mobile sometimes and Whatsapp Audio.

4.Choose Johns name with Mobile and a direct call will be place over your carrier phone network.The other option with Whtasapp Audio was probably the option you were selecting without noticing.

Why did this happen?

The iPhone call log now records Whatsapp calls as part of the phone log and not only in the App Whatsapp. This may also apply to other calls apps too. You may not have noticed a difference and kept on selecting the Whatsapp call thinking only direct calls could be made from the phone dialer.
