What do you need to make or receive calls on WhatsApp Desktop?

Users need an audio output device and microphone for making voice and video calls.

To make one-on-one video calls, your device should have a camera.

You also need to have an active internet connection on your computer and smartphone. The call won’t go through your phone, but it needs to be online to establish the call.

WhatsApp will ask you to grant permission for accessing your computer’s microphone and camera for making video calls. This is similar to the mobile version.

WhatsApp Desktop calling is supported on Windows 10 64-bit version 1903 and newer, and macOS 10.13 and newer.

First, install WhatsApp's desktop app for Windows or Mac.

Use your phone to scan the QR code on your computer.

Your WhatsApp account will open on the screen.

Now open a chat and click the voice call icon or the video call icon at the top right corner.

A WhatsApp call will be placed directly from the desktop.

Voice calls

In addition to sending text messages, you can use WhatsApp to make voice calls. Because calls are made over the Internet, there will be no charges made or minutes used by your cellular plan. However, if you're not connected to a Wi-Fi network, voice calls will use up data from your data plan.

To start a voice call:

There are a few easy ways to make voice calls.

Open the conversation of the person you'd like to call and tap the call button in the top-right corner of the screen.

Tap the Contacts tab at the bottom of the screen, then tap the name of the person you'd like to call. That person's contact information will appear. Tap the call button.

If you've called someone before, you can tap the Calls tab, then tap the name of the person you want to call.

All three of these methods will begin a call with the person you've selected. Once that person accepts the call, you're good to go. You have the option of muting the call, sending a message, and using the speaker by tapping the corresponding buttons. When you're done with the call, simply tap the end call button.

To answer an incoming call:

When someone calls you via WhatsApp, it will look similar to when you receive a regular phone call, but it will display the words WhatsApp Audio somewhere on the screen. In our example, our screenshot is from an iPhone, so it may look different to you depending on the device you're using. Simply tap or slide the answer button to accept the call.
