WhatsApp announced on Thursday that private and secure one-to-one voice and video calls are now available on desktop apps for Windows and Apple Mac devices. To make desktop calling more useful, WhatsApp has ensured that it works natively for both portrait and landscape orientation. Facebook-owned company WhatsApp said in a statement, “It appears in a resizable standalone window on your computer screen, and is always on top, so you can never open your video chat in open windows in a browser tab or stack.” Lose it.
The company said, “Voice and video calls are end-to-end encrypted on WhatsApp, so WhatsApp cannot hear or see them, whether you make calls from your phone or your computer.” WhatsApp said that it would expand this feature to include the group’s voice and video calls in the future.
WhatsApp has recently announced the roll out of a new security feature for WhatsApp web and desktop, which includes face and fingerprint unlock when linking devices. The company said in a statement, “When you want to connect your WhatsApp account to your computer, it adds an extra layer of security.”
