Video And Voice Call Coming To WhatsApp Desktop App, Soon


WhatsApp is reportedly testing the ability to make video and voice calls via its desktop app, and the feature might arrive soon to users.

As per a screenshot shared by The Guardian's Alex Hern on Twitter, the image showed both the video call and voice call button inside a chat on the desktop app. Hern adds that the feature is available on the beta version of WhatsApp and not on the stable version.


When this functionality arrives on the desktop app for WhatsApp, users will be able to make video on multiple devices, and not just smartphones alone. 

Hern's tweet shows the video and voice call buttons sitting next to the search option. For now, WhatsApp on desktop has a lone search button in the top bar, and the video and call buttons should appear alongside each when the update gets rolled out.

This isn't the first time that we are hearing of such feature. In October, features tracker WABetaInfo, reported the same feature. The tracker said that WhatsApp Web users will get a pop-up window for receiving and rejecting calls when a call gets in.

There will also be an "Ignore" option at the bottom when a calls comes in. When making a call, a smaller pop-up will appear with options for that of video call, to decline, mute, and more settings.

Though Facebook hasn't made any official announcement regarding this feature, chances are that WhatsApp is already preparing the feature to release for Desktop.
