WhatsApp’s desktop app now has voice and video calls

WhatsApp’s desktop app for PC and Mac is getting voice and video calling, the company announced. The feature offers end-to-end encrypted calls to other WhatsApp users on both mobile and computer devices.

WhatsApp started to roll out the desktop calling feature for a small group of users at the end of last year. But today’s launch means that the feature is now available to all WhatsApp users on desktop. This makes calls a more ubiquitous feature across all WhatsApp devices.

And similar to the existing video call feature, the new desktop calling promises the same end-to-end encryption-which means Facebook and WhatsApp can’t hear or see your calls.

To use the new video calling feature, you’ll have to set up the WhatsApp desktop app on either Mac or PC, which requires that you already be a WhatsApp user on mobile. Once you’ve installed the app on your computer, users will then scan a QR code to log in on the desktop app, after which they’ll be able to use the desktop version of WhatsApp with their usual account.
