"To make desktop calling more useful, WhatsApp has made sure it works seamlessly for both portrait and landscape orientation. It appears in a resizable standalone window on your computer screen, and is set to be always on top so you never lose your video chats in a browser tab or stack of open windows," the messaging platform said in its blogpost.
"Voice and video calls on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted, so WhatsApp can’t hear or see them, whether you call from your phone or your computer. We’re starting with one-to-one calls on the WhatsApp desktop app so we make sure we can give you a reliable and high-quality experience. We will be expanding this feature to include group voice and video calls in the future," the company said.
Meanwhile, the messaging platform is reportedly rolling out a new feature that would allow the receiver to only view images once, without the ability to save them to their device. WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp has shared a couple of screenshots revealing the working of the disappearing images feature. As the name suggests, the images will self-destruct after a pre-set time for both the sender and receiver.
