WhatsApp has begun to make available to some users of its desktop app for Windows 10 (downloadable on its official website or from the Microsoft Store) a beta version of the audio and video calls that we have been using for some time in the mobile version.
It had already been published in October the imminent implementation of this functionality, but now, finally, some users are beginning to announce on social networks the sudden appearance of it.
Those who do, have been able to see how two new icons appeared in its interface: One for voice calls and one for video calls, with the relevant warning that we are dealing with a function still in tests.
This is how the new WhatsApp Desktop looks like
For these users, the WhatsApp application toolbar now looks like this:
And a floating window allows us to accept or reject the call or end it while participating in it:
The screenshots uploaded so far to the networks show how the video call boxes are displayed horizontally when carried out from a PC, in contrast to those coming from mobiles.
If you don’t have this feature yet, don’t worry: It’s just a matter of time (although the company hasn’t specified deadlines for now) and it will eventually be activated for all users.
