Here’s The First Good News For WhatsApp This Year

WhatsApp has been working on getting voice and video calling support to the web version of the app for a while now and it might be coming soon.

Let’s face it, 2021 has not been a great for WhatsApp so far. January 6, the Facebook-owned messaging application has been dealing with sharp analysis on all fronts on account of its new privacy policy.

With numerous users picking alternatives like Signal and Telegram over WhatsApp, the messaging application has been struggling to make its case and convince peoples that their private chats are still perfectly protected.

In any case, WhatsApp may have a bit of good news for its users soon, without precedent for the new year up until now.

WhatsApp has been testing the voice and video call feature on its web and desktop application for some time now and the feature has rolled out to a few more users.

According to a tweet by Guillermo Tomoyose, this feature has been spotted on Windows 10 on WhatsApp. This was authenticated by WABetaInfo, and they tweeted with – “WhatsApp is rolling out WhatsApp Beta calls on WhatsApp Desktop for more users!”

We have spoken about this back in December when WABetaInfo had written that a few users was seeing calls button in the chat header on their WhatsApp Desktop.

WABetaInfo had referenced then that WhatsApp is still working on building up this feature, and subsequently this feature was not accessible to all users on WhatsApp Web and Desktop update.

The new feature, that will allow users to make on voice and video calls from the browser and web application, seems to be rolling out in a staged manner to more peoples. The worldwide rollout should to happen soon, going by this development.

This feature is very useful for peoples who use the web version of the application a lot.
