This is after WhatsApp on Thursday announced that it was rolling out support for voice and video calling to the desktop app.

According to the Facebook messaging app services, the new feature will only support one- to- one calls with future plans to expand it to include group video and voice calls.

” Video calls work “seamlessly” for both portrait and landscape orientation, and the desktop client is “set to be always on top so you never lose your video chats in a browser tab or stack of open windows,” said the firm.

The firm was categorical that the app would only work on its five- year old desktop app and not the popular WhatsApp We which is the browser version.

The new feature seeks to compete popular apps Zoom and Google which millions of people have been using for one-to-one calls.

WhatsApp calls have become popular on phones with the tech firm revealing that it undertook over 1.4 billion calls on the eve of New Year.
