Messaging giant WhatsApp is testing WhatsApp voice and video calls that can be made directly from the desktop. If this feature, which is in the works, comes to fruition soon enough, it could take on Zoom and Google Duo, given its popularity with 1.5 billion active users around the world.
WhatsApp WaBetainfo Development Tracker found that the platform is testing a calling feature for the desktop version of WhatsApp. The functionality tested on version 2.2034.7 will allow users to take and make WhatsApp calls directly from the desktop.
According to a report from 9to5 Google, the new findings indicate that users will be able to take calls with a pop-up window displaying caller details and contact information as well as the type of incoming call. Users will be able to accept or decline calls just like they do on mobile. When users participate in an active WhatsApp web call, they will see a floating window showing the current connection status with an end call button and additional options such as mute the microphone.
However, it is not known when these features will be available in the stable version, but the prospect of taking and making voice or video calls from a laptop, desktop or tablet could be part of the multi support. -devices expected to be rolled out soon. The much talked about and speculated multi-device feature will allow users to work with the same WhatsApp account on 4 different devices at the same time.
In addition, there will be no internet connection required on the main phone, WaBetainFo noted in its past reports. So users will be able to access WhatsApp Desktop even when their phone is off, for example, or other devices. “WhatsApp is also planning a new modern user interface for the desktop client, showing how chat history is migrated from your device and the process is end-to-end encrypted,” the report said.
WhatsApp is also said to be working on expiring media or self-destructing messages. Additionally, the messaging app is working on a feature that will allow users to report bugs directly from the messaging app. All the features mentioned above are available in the beta version and should be rolled out soon.
