New Delhi: WhatsApp on Thursday announced that private and secure one-to-one voice and video calls are now available on desktop applications for Windows and Apple Mac devices. To make desktop calling more useful, WhatsApp has ensured that it works natively for both portrait and landscape approaches. WhatsApp, which owns Facebook, said in a statement: “It appears in a single resizable single window on your computer screen, and is always at the top, so you can never open your video chat in open windows in a browser tab or stack.”
“Voice and video calls are end-to-end encrypted on WhatsApp, so WhatsApp will not be able to hear or see them, whether you call from your phone or your computer,” the company said. WhatsApp said it will expand the feature to include group voice and video calls in the future.
WhatsApp recently announced the rollout of a new security feature for WhatsApp Web and Desktop, which includes face and fingerprint unlock when linking devices. “When you want to connect your WhatsApp account to your computer, it will add an extra layer of security,” the company said in a statement.
