Meta-owned messaging platform, WhatsApp for Desktop, has received a new update. The app’s latest version, according to reports, now has improved video and audio calls while loading faster.
Meta claims that users can now add more people to group calls, with the new update introducing multi-device capabilities while offering instant device linking and easier syncing across devices.
Reports also have it that WhatsApp was testing the ability to find similar groups for contacts on its latest beta version on Android devices.
The latest WhatsApp desktop app for Windows, according to Meta’s blog post, will allow users to execute group video calls with up to eight users while enabling more than 30 for audio calls.
The blog post also revealed that the messaging platform will increase the limits, allowing users a seamless connection with family, friends and colleagues. The WhatsApp desktop version bears a similar interface to the mobile app.
According to WhatsApp, its desktop version for Windows will continue to provide end-to-end encryption for chats and media across different devices. This means that any third person can’t access the content, even the app doesn’t have access to it, the company claimed.
Meta confirmed that it will share the details of introducing faster syncing across devices, and also be able to send stickers and link previews.
WhatsApp is working on a beta version for Mac desktops and Android tablets, as they are presented in the early stages of beta testing.
