The world’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, is gearing up to add support for video and voice calls to its web version soon. The two new features have been available on smartphones and other mobile devices for several years now and will finally appear on WhatsApp Web.
According to a report by the specialized website WABetaInfo, new features were discovered in the code of the latest update of the web version and the desktop client of the messenger. They have already been able to incorporate these features, which are still in development.
WaBetaInfo assures that the function of voice and video calls for WhatsApp Web is currently in beta testing. The publication also shared several screenshots of the highly anticipated features.
When receiving a voice call, users will notice a pop-up window that will allow them to accept or reject the call. When making a call, another window appears, offering common controls such as mute and hang up. In addition, the report says that WhatsApp is preparing to test the group voice and video calling feature.

Obviously, this update has not yet been officially announced by the company. So it is not known exactly when it will be released. But WABetaInfo believes that the function is already working fairly stable. At least because of this, you can judge that you won’t have to wait long for an update.
Whatsapp is about to launch the multiple device support
The team of the popular messenger WhatsApp will soon launch a hotly awaited feature by many users. We are talking about the support for simultaneous work from multiple devices with one account.
According to WABetaInfo, the function is already in the final stage of development. And the next step is that the WhatsApp team will launch an open beta test. The source recommends that anyone looking to try out the features make sure they are using the beta versions of WhatsApp for Android and iOS.
What we know about the function at the moment is that one WhatsApp account will be able to work on four devices at the same time.
WhatsApp users have dreamed of real multi-device support since the launch of the messenger in 2009. Synchronization between devices with the simultaneous work of WhatsApp is simply not provided. Currently, WhatsApp only allows one device to connect to an account. Even the desktop version of WhatsApp can only work in conjunction with a running application on a smartphone, “mirroring” it.
