WhatsApp may soon allow you to make video calls through computer!

There is some good news for WhatsApp users! You might soon be able to make video calls and voice calls through the web version of the messaging app. The feature is currently in the beta stage and would be available to users in near future.

According to a report in Wabetainfo, the integrated support for voice and video calls would be available in the latest update with version 2.2043.7 for the desktop client of the messaging app. Although the feature is currently being tested and is in the beta stage, Wabatainfo has shared some screenshots of the same.

The screenshots show a pop-up window when you receive a call. The users have the option to either take the call or ignore it. Another pop-up window comes up when users try to make a call. This gives users the option to start a video call, decline, mute and more settings. What is even more exciting is that the feature supports group voice and video calls as well. This means people will not have to depend upon Google Meet and Zoom for group meetings which have become the norm during coronavirus-induced lockdowns.

The feature will make life easier for WhatsApp users as they will not have to switch between their phones and computers. Messaging service is already available on WhatsApp Web and the introduction of voice/video calls will make it even smoother for people as they will not have to enter passwords required in other video calling applications.

There is no clarity as to when to when the  feature will be available for WhatsApp web users as the messaging company and its parent company have not made any announcement so far in this regard.
