Popular messaging app WhatsApp has finally rolled out voice and video call support for its desktop app, a big relief for those who are sitting most of the time in front of their computers and working on WhatsApp web.
In a tweet, WhatsApp announced end-to-end encrypted voice and video calls for its desktop app version and also shared a link to download the app on your computer.
“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.

“Voice and video calls on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted, so WhatsApp can’t hear or see them, whether you call from your phone or your computer. We’re starting with one-to-one calls on the WhatsApp desktop app so we make sure we can give you a reliable and high-quality experience. We will be expanding this feature to include group voice and video calls in the future,” the company said in a statement.
Whatsapp said that desktop calling is supported on:
- -Windows 10 64-bit version 1903 and newer.
- -macOS 10.13 and newer
