Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a new WhatsApp app for Windows, which will enable group video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with up to 32 people – from desktop.
The new Windows desktop app loads faster and is built with an interface familiar to WhatsApp and Windows users. You can host group video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with up to 32 people. WhatsApp will increase these limits over time so you can always stay connected with friends, family and work colleagues.
WhatsApp is the largest platform to provide a fully end-to-end encrypted experience that allows cross-platform communication between mobile phones, computers, tablets and more. This means that your personal messages, media, and calls are always end-to-end encrypted across all your devices.
WhatsApp has also introduced a new WhatsApp beta experience for Android tablets. WhatsApp is also launching a new, faster app for Mac desktops that is currently in the early stages of beta.
