WhatsApp is more than just a text chat service—you’ve been able to use it to make voice and video calls for as long as I can remember. In fact, WhatsApp has even bolstered its video chat capabilities during amid these cheery pandemic times, and now allows you to converse with up to 50 people at a time. But you still have to do it via the mobile app, which isn’t nearly as useful as being able to do the same things on a desktop app.

You’ll have to open WhatsApp on your phone to scan a QR code on WhatsApp Desktop, which is how the two link up. Then, if you’re lucky, you should see new icons for video and voice chats within any of your existing conversations in the desktop version. You can’t miss them if you have access, as each icon will say “beta” in the upper-right corner.

According to these findings, group voice and video calls will be possible with WhatsApp Web, too. As we’ve seen the Facebook-owned firm add further support and integration to its other services, this might make WhatsApp a great alternative to Zoom and Google Duo for group video calls.

We’re not sure when we might see this option in a stable update, but the prospect of being able to take and place calls from your laptop, desktop, or even tablet might be part of the upcoming multi-device support that is purported as coming soon.
