Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

This week, WhatsApp added the ability to make voice and video calls through its desktop application. You will only be able to make one-to-one calls for now, but will expand to group calls later.

Desktop calls work in both portrait and landscape orientation, appear in a customizable stand-alone window on the screen and are set to always appear at the top so they don’t disappear under a mountain of open windows.

Calls on WhatsApp for desktop are compatible with:

  • Windows 10 (64-bit) version 1903 and later
  • macOS 10.13 and later

To make or receive calls on WhatsApp for your computer, you will need:

  • Have speakers and a microphone for voice and video calls.
  • Have a camera for video calls.
  • Make sure your computer and mobile phone are connected to the internet. THE
  • call will be made or received on WhatsApp for computer, but your mobile phone must be connected to the internet in order to make the call.
  • Allow WhatsApp to access your computer’s microphone and camera. WhatsApp needs to have access to your computer’s microphone and camera to be able to make voice and video calls.

All WhatsApp calls are encrypted from end to end (as are any messages you send), so the company cannot hear or see them.

In January, the company added the ability to use biometric data – your face or fingerprint – when calling from devices, and now if you have the WhatsApp desktop app installed on your computer, you can make voice and video calls for free for your contacts, just with the observation that at the moment, group calls are not compatible with WhatsApp for the computer.
