WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo reported in its report that video and voice call support has been integrated into the latest update version 2.2043.7 for the messaging app’s web / desktop client. Although the feature is currently only available in beta version, WABetaInfo has tested the feature and shared screenshots.
In the shared screenshot, it can be seen that when you get a call using WhatsApp Web on your desktop, a pop-up window opens in which the option to pick and cut the call appears. Apart from these two, there is also the option of an ‘ignore’. At the same time, a small window opens while making calls, in which options such as video start, mute and decline are available.
The report also states that group video call and voice call support is also present in this update. However, this feature is not currently available for testing and will soon be added for web / desktop clients.
Video and voice call support will make things even more comfortable, as users will get the facility to make calls and video calls between work on their desktop and laptop. They do not need to switch from desktop and laptop to phone for making calls. Just like everyone knows that messaging support already exists on WhatsApp web, while now the facility of voice call and video call will make it even more useful.
It is worth noting that currently the parent company of WhatsApp, Facebook, has not shared any information about this feature nor has it said when it will be made available to the public. However, this feature is present in the latest beta update, so it can be expected that it will be introduced soon.
