WhatsApp Desktop Video and Voice Calling Feature is Coming Soon!


WhatsApp is the most common app in everyone’s smartphone. It is cross-platform texting and Voice over IP service inhabited by Facebook. It allows users to send and receive text and voice messages. You can even share documents, images. If you are using WhatsApp on your smartphone then you probably know that you can even make voice and video calls. However, if you are using the web or the desktop version of WhatsApp, you won’t be able to make voice and video calls. But, as far as the news is concerned, WhatsApp could soon roll out support for making voice and video calls from its desktop app.

In an image shared by The Guardian’s Alex Hern on Twitter, we could spot two new buttons for voice and video call. Moreover, both of these icons have the tag “beta” confirming that WhatsApp is testing this feature and these supports are not yet available in the stable version of WhatsApp’s desktop app. Earlier, in October, WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo also noticed the same changes in the desktop application.  The video call and voice call buttons were visible on top just next to the contact’s name.

The support for voice and video calls on WhatsApp Web should be available to WhatsApp’s beta users in the coming week but there is no official confirmation on when WhatsApp will introduce it on the stable version.

How will the voice/video call support work on the desktop application of WhatsApp?

When users will make a voice/video call on WhatsApp Web, a small window will appear with their name, profile picture and buttons to end the call. Users can even switch to video/audio, and mute the call.

Let’s just see how long we have to wait for this update to come on the stable version. This update would make it quite susceptible for people to use WhatsApp for timely group calls instead of having to schedule meetings.
