WhatsApp is gearing up to soon add support for making video and voice calls on its browser version of its popular messaging application. These two features have been available for years on smartphones and are finally making their way to WhatsApp Web
According to an XDADevelopers report, WABetaInfo recently found the new features in the latest updated on the web/desktop client (version 2.2043.7) and was able to enable these features which were still in development. At the moment, both the voice and video call feature for WhatsApp Web is currently in the beta stages. Although, WaBetaInfo was able to get the feature working, and even shared a few screenshots of the upcoming features.
When receiving a voice call, users are greeted with a popup window that will let them accept or decline the call. Similarly, another window appears when making a call, which also offers general controls like mute and hanging up. Furthermore, the report also stated that WhatsApp is gearing up for a Group Voice and Video calls feature that is currently being tested.
Unfortunately, this update for the added support has yet to be officially announced by the company. So, it is unknown as to when exactly the update will be rolling out. However, it shouldn’t be too far in the future considering it’s already functional to a certain degree. So stay tuned for more updates on this.
