For a few years now, and despite the fact that WhatsApp has long been limited to mobile phones, we have WhatsApp Web at our disposal, as well as dedicated desktop apps. Thanks to them, and always have a phone nearby, we can read and reply to our messages from the computer.
However, these applications are still far from having all the functionalities that mobile phones already have in their dedicated applications. To begin with, you cannot make or answer calls or video calls. At least, that’s what has happened so far, as the situation may soon change.
From iPhoneHacks they report the appearance of these features in applications WhatsApp for desktop. Specifically, they shared some of the images they posted from @WABetaInfo, one of the most trusted sources for news on this platform. And yes, that would be when he fell.
According to the pictures, users they should be able to start making and receiving voice and video calls via your Mac or PC in a matter of weeks. Both functions have reportedly already started to appear, albeit with the warning that these are beta versions. Even so, they seem to work in a pretty similar way to how they do on phones.
This change is accompanied by the addition of a storage manager in the Android and iOS version, as well as the expected ephemeral messages, which are still not available to all users. We will have to be a little more patient to start taking advantage of these new features that have been brought by the WhatsApp development team.
