Two years have passed since WhatsApp added video and audio calling features, but the social media platform has not yet introduced its features to desktop PC users. But this may change soon, as the company is rolling out these two features to the WhatsApp Desktop application.
According to a report from AndroidAuthority, WABetaInfo found that both audio and video calling functions have reached the desktop application.
The only problem is that this feature can only be used with limited activation. Therefore, most features have not yet received updates, and two features still carry the beta label. However, people who have received the message should be able to see the button in the chat title, which is next to the search icon.
This feature still requires users to connect their smartphones to the desktop application. Although, any audio or video calls will be routed through the computer.
In addition, whether the desktop application supports third-party microphones or cameras is also unknown. But hopefully, this is the case when the update is released to the current stable version.
There are rumors that the social media giant is currently working to bring these features to the desktop. It even plans to make the desktop into a standalone application, which means you will no longer need your smartphone to pair with the application or browser.
Other beta updates include the use of biometric security in smartphones to activate WhatsApp on desktops. So stay tuned for more updates.
