Coming soon to WhatsApp Web: Calling and Video Calling

WhatsApp Web is the synchronized version of WhatsApp that allows you to view and respond to your messages from your browser on a PC. The experience is good, although it has some limitations and differences from the WhatsApp application on the mobile. For example, it is not possible to make calls or video calls.

This last limitation, at least, has its days counted. As you may have discovered on WaBetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on bring call and video call support to WhatsApp Weband we even have some screenshots of how the system will work in the beginning.

WhatsApp calls from your PC

WhatsApp Web allows you to chat from your browser or by installing the native PC application, just by scanning a QR code from your mobile. The mobile phone does the hard work in the background, so one of the limitations it has is that you need keep your phone on and connected to the Internet at all times.

It remains to be seen whether this will change with the expected multi-device support to come. What seems to be clear is that this will not prevent some somewhat more advanced features coming to WhatsApp on the desktop as well, such as the calls and video calls. WaBetaInfo has been able to activate the function in tests, so we have some idea of how it will look and work.


The function is not yet active for users, but as we can see in the screenshot above, it seems that will be launched first as a beta. The operation is not very different from how calls work on the mobile: when you are called, a floating window appears to accept or reject, and in the same way we can initiate a call or video call from the top of the window, by touching the button on the camera or the phone of a contact.

At the moment it’s a mystery when calls and video calls will be available on the web version of WhatsApp, although according to WaBetaInfo, it could be a matter of weeks. Another interesting fact in your report is that it should include support for group calls and video calls. We’ll have to wait.
