WhatsApp announced the release of a new Windows desktop client with improved calling features. The move is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to expand its reach and enhance the user experience.
The new client, which is now available for download on the WhatsApp website, offers users a host of new features, including improved video and audio quality during calls, the ability to make group calls with up to eight people, and a streamlined user interface.
According to a statement released by WhatsApp, the new client is designed to provide users with a seamless communication experience across all devices, including mobile, desktop, and web. “We know that many of our users rely on WhatsApp for communication with friends, family, and colleagues, and we want to make sure that they have access to the best possible experience, no matter how they choose to use the app,” the statement reads.
The new client is compatible with Windows 10 and above, and is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Users will need to have a WhatsApp account in order to use the app, and will need to link their mobile device to their desktop client in order to sync their messages and contacts.
