WhatsApp has finally added the ability to make voice and video calls via the desktop version of the app. However, there is no support for group calling and for this, you will have to use the mobile version of WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned company has at least confirmed that it will add this feature to group voice and video calls “in the future.” Read on to know more about the new WhatsApp feature.

How to make voice and video calls on WhatsApp desktop

Once you initiate a call on the desktop version, a standalone window will appear on the screen, which one will be able to resize as per their needs. WhatsApp users will always notice the call window on top of the screen, so that they can also chat or browse content online. WhatsApp noted that all voice and video calls on its app are end-to-end encrypted.

Step 1: You first need to download and install WhatsApp’s desktop app on your device.

Step 2: Once installed, open it and configure it by scanning the QR code using WhatsApp on your smartphone. For this, open WhatsApp app > tap on the three-dotted button > WhatsApp Web to scan.
