A platform that tracks new and upcoming features on WhatsApp has recently shared a stimulating update regarding the famous messaging service. Apparently, WhatsApp is functioning on voice and video call options for the online desktop platforms. WABetaInfo spotted this new functionality in beta version 2.2043.7. It means the corporate is beta testing this feature before its mass release. WhatsApp voice, video, and group calls are available on Android and iOS for a short time now, and it had been time that the online version also gets these options.
WABI reported that a gaggle voice and video call option is additionally under works for the online version, but it's currently not included within the beta testing. it's not known if it'll release along side this feature or separately in another update, although releasing them together makes more sense. But whenever it'll release, it'll directly come on the online versions without browsing the beta testing phase.
The screenshots that were shared with this report show that a card will pop-up for incoming voice or video calls. The users will have the regular options to either accept the decision or decline it. An’ Ignore’ option is additionally getting to be available at rock bottom of this pop-up window. it's not exactly clear how this Ignore option will work. Whether it'll automatically mute the incoming call, or will it stop ringing ahead of the recipient while the caller thinks that their call goes through? we'll need to await this feature to release officially to verify its exact functionality.
On the opposite hand, a smaller pop-up window will open if a user wants to form a call with regular options of voice, video, mute, and a few other settings.
This is getting to be a much-needed update because it's quite frustrating to mount from the laptop to the phone whenever a WhatsApp call is coming through otherwise you need to make it. this is often a far sensible choice to have the decision options available within the web version in order that everything is more cohesive.
WhatsApp’s parent company Facebook has not issued any statement, neither did WhatsApp make any comments or announcements about this upcoming feature. Also, it's not known exactly when this feature will officially roll out. Hopefully, soon!
