WhatsApp has been long rumored to be working on adding a call and video call button to the web version of the app. It is now believed that the feature is being slowly rolled out to some of the web users. Users took to Twitter to share the screenshot of the new feature.
A verified Twitter user by the name of Guillermo Tomoyose shared the screenshot of the latest WhatsApp feature. In the picture, you can spot the voice and video call buttons with beta written over that have appeared on the web version of the app. He said that the feature is available in Argentina.
Wabetainfo confirmed the claims of Tomoyose and reported that some users have spotted Beta Voice and Video Calls in the chat header on WhatsApp Desktop because the feature is being slowly rolled out. But the features tracker also confirmed that being a beta feature, it will only be available to very few people.
“WhatsApp is rolling out beta calls for specific users but unfortunately, being a beta feature, it’s available for very few people. We hope you’re lucky but, if it doesn’t, don’t worry: every day more users receive that activation and, at present, WhatsApp Desktop has a higher priority,” the Wabetainfo read.
Wabetainfo had earlier shared details about how the feature is going to look when it is officially rolled out. The screenshots shared by the WhatsApp features tracker show that a new window will open up every time you receive a call or try to make a call through the WhatsApp web.

However, WhatsApp is yet to officially announce the new feature.
