Whatsapp will add voice and video calls to its web version soon with an update. One of the major limitations of WhatsApp Web, besides not being able to use the custom stickers we have on the mobile, is that it does not support calls and video calls. Be that as it may, it seems like with a new update whole thing will change.
Rumors indicate that WhatsApp Web is preparing for an update that brings voice and video calls. We still don’t know when the update will arrive.

WhatsApp will enable video calls directly from your PC
The specific version we are talking about is WhatsApp Web 2.2043.7. Rumors show that there are new icons right next to the search engine that allows you to start a voice or video call. Also, the “beta” sign appears too, which could indicate that WhatsApp could launch this function in the testing phase soon.
When we receive a call or video call from WhatsApp, the website displays a pop-up with the user’s name, profile picture, and accept or reject buttons.
According to rumors, there is a group call option too. However, since the feature is still under development, we do not know what the interface of a video call with eight people will look like or whether it will be possible to use it in the picture in picture mode. We will learn about these features if the beta version arrives soon.
Whatsapp Web might add voice and video call support soon. As we said earlier, we still don’t know if this update will arrive soon, but we might see a beta version before it officially arrives.
