WhatsApp is rolling out its latest feature where we can access voice and video calls through laptops and desktops, but how?

However, the calls will be end-to-end encrypted, which means WhatsApp and Facebook can't hear anything, but you have to install the app on your desktop. The desktops and laptops should have Windows 10 64-bit version 1903 and higher, and Apple users should have macOS 10.13 and higher.

Group calls are not yet supported on PCs and laptops, though there's a planning of expanding the feature. Laptops and desktops should have an audio output device and microphone for making calls.
