WhatsApp the most widely used interpersonal communication application owned by Facebook is meeting up the need and possible demand of it’s users as it introduces it’s WhatsApp Beta which gives desktop users the opportunity to use all the facilities available on the WhatsApp mobile.
Using the desktop version of the application has not given room for voice calls and video calls and this has been a major corns for the computer systems user of the app.
Facebook is doing this for the first time and in the history of WhatsApp thereby given it more edge.
The move to facilitate calls over large screens would put WhatsApp on par with video-conferencing bigwigs Zoom and Google Meet that have seen a meteoric rise in usage during the pandemic, but it is unclear if it has ambitions to compete with the two.
WhatsApp did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
With over two billion users globally, WhatsApp is second only to its parent firm Facebook’s namesake app, yet it is largely used for personal calls, unlike Zoom or Google Meet.
