WhatsApp broadcasts audio and video calls for the PC users

While it’s been a year or two since WhatsApp added a video and audio calling feature, the social media platform has yet to bring the feature to its desktop PC users. But that could soon change, as the company rolls out both features to the WhatsApp Desktop app.


According to the AndroidAuthority report, WABetaInfo find out that both the audio and video calling features reach the desktop apps. The only issue is that the feature has only been available with limited release. So, most have not yet received the update for now, and both features are still arriving with a beta release. However, those who found it should be able to see the buttons in the cat band, which are located next to the search icon.

This feature would still require users to connect their smartphones to the desktop application. Although, audio or video calls are sent through a person’s computer. In addition, it is also unknown whether the desktop app will support third-party microphones or cameras. But hopefully, that’s when the upgrade goes out to the current stable.

He even designed a desktop to make the app stand-alone, meaning you would no longer need your smartphone to pair with the app or the browser.
