You can call on someone, pop in, or call round and they all mean to pay a visit. If you call in, it suggests making a phone call, such as to a radio or TV talk show, but I've never heard it used to refer to visiting.

There are a number of ways of casually inviting someone to come and visit you: call in, drop by, pop in, call around, stop by, come on by.....they all mean the same thing.

Yes, to me call in, call on, call round and pop mean the same. They have other meanings as well, but in the context of going to visit somone they all mean the same. These would be said by either the visitor or the person who is being visited. 'Come over' would also work but to me possibly sounds more likely to be said by the person being visited.
