WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging service, announced Thursday that voice and video calling would be added to its desktop app, bringing relief to countless people seated in front of computers who have had to reach for their phone every time their WhatsApp rang. For the time being, WhatsApp's nearly five-year-old Mac and Windows desktop app will only allow one-to-one calls, although it plans to extend this functionality to include community voice and video calls "in the future."
The desktop client is “set to be always on top so you never lose your video chats in a browser tab or stack of open windows,” according to the company, which started testing the functionality with a small group of users on desktop late last year. The new feature support should be useful to the millions of people who use WhatsApp's desktop client on a daily basis and have had to rely on Zoom or Google Meet for one-to-one video calls on their computers, owing to convenience.
