WhatsApp is a messaging app that allows users to get in touch with their friends and family. For this, the application offers services such as Chats, Voice Calls, and Video calls. Previously, the audio and video call features were only available for smartphone users.
Now as per the latest information, these two services are now also included in the PC application which the users can access from their PC and laptops. The users from today itself will be able to use them on desktop, no matter whether they are operating on Windows or macOS.
The company says that the feature of end-to-end encrypted audio and video calls are available now and are just like a phone. WhatsApp desktop users can switch between landscape and portrait screen rotation mode. In addition to this, there is an option to keep the application window on the top of the screen, which is a very convenient feature.
The advantage of using ‘WhatsApp’ on the desktop is the big screen which allows you to see each and every member on a video call very clearly and makes conferencing very easy. You can download the newest version of the application via the official website. If you want to know more about application features, you can jump to the support article section.
During the session or a meeting, the user can also turn the video on and off, and even there is an option to mute the microphone. The company recently updated its desktop app that will be now available with an extra security step, which now requires biometric authentication.
