WhatsApp just announced one of its most awaited feature
Checkout out how you can use it
The Facebook-owned company WhatsApp announced the much-anticipated voice and video calling feature on WhatsApp’s desktop app. Earlier, the video and voice calling feature were only available on the WhatsApp mobile app for android and iOS.
Like the existing video calling feature for mobile Apps, the new desktop calling offers the same end-to-end encryption. This means your calls are safe, and WhatsApp and Facebook cannot access them.
The current update only supports one-to-one calling, and the group calling feature is still missing from the desktop app. The company had previously promised to launch the group calling feature on the desktop as well but didn’t specify a particular launch date.
“Sometimes, you just need a little more space. Secure and reliable, end-to-end encrypted voice and video calls are now available on our desktop app,” the Facebook-owned messaging App tweeted.
How to use the new desktop calling feature
To use the latest WhatsApp desktop calling feature, you have to first set up WhatsApp on either PC or Mac. You can easily download WhatsApp on your PC and install it. After the installation, you have to scan a QR code from your mobile’s WhatsApp web option to log in on the desktop app.
After scanning the QR code, you can easily use the desktop app with your current WhatsApp account.
When will the WhatsApp desktop call feature launch?
WhatsApp already started to roll out the desktop calling feature to a small group last year. However, the company’s launch assures that the feature is now available to all WhatsApp users on desktop. All the users will get the desktop calling feature with an update within a few days.
