WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging clients in the world. Still, its desktop and web clients haven’t reached full parity with the mobile version, though that’s been changing over the last few months.
As with all desktop functionality, users will still need to maintain a connection to their phone. But being able to chat at a computer makes keeping in touch with friends and family via WhatsApp easier. Like some chatters prefer a physical keyboard to send texts, others like sitting at a computer for voice and video calls. No holding up a phone or propping up a tablet for hours.
Reportedly in the works for two years, WhatsApp Calls are only available to a small sample of WhatsApp users right now, though WABetaInfo indicates it’s slowly rolling out to others. There isn’t an estimated timeline for when everyone can access WhatsApp Calls, but if other feature debuts are any indication, it won’t be very long until they’re available for all.
Previously, the desktop app received sticker support, allowing users to send and receive stickers that mirrored those purchased on their phones. Before that, the app introduced a shopping cart for business-oriented users as well as a “disappearing message” functionality meant to make private conversations even more so.
