The audio, and video calling facility available to those using the WhatsApp web version can be a great relief. This instant messaging app is now rolling out the audio and video calling feature, allowing users to make or receive audio and video calls on the desktop screen.
According to WABetaInfo (a website tracking WhatsApp) “Audio and video calls are now running out of the WhatsApp desktop app, but this is a very limited launch for now, with beta labels getting buttons too. “
This feature has started appearing for some WhatsApp beta users. Audio and video calling options affect the search button – both beta tags at the top of the chat window.
The tipster said that “for a few days, some users have been seeing the call button in the chat header on the WhatsApp desktop!”
However, WhatsApp desktop users will still need the phone to connect to the desktop app. But audio or video calls will be routed through any computer.
