The tech giant is now working on a new update that will give users the ability to check the calls tab on WhatsApp desktop.
As per a report in
Wabetainfo, WhatsApp has already rolled out the calls tab for a few beta users. In October, the Meta-owned social network had rolled out an update for WhatsApp beta which brought a new app sidebar.
The calls log will appear on the sidebar next to Status and Chats List, making it easier for WhatsApp users to scroll through their desired tab on the platform. This upcoming update will be a part of the call history on WhatsApp. As per the screenshot attached with the report, the new calls tab pops up the moment the app is opened on desktop.
Once you click on the option, a drop-down page will open, displaying a user’s call history on WhatsApp desktop.

This sidebar showcasing a user’s call history also means that WhatsApp will soon allow WhatsApp users to make phone calls on the platform from their desktop app.
The beta version with the update, WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2246.4.0, was released on the Microsoft Store.
But since the feature is still in beta version, it will not be available for all WhatsApp users.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also working on a new update that will bring the companion mode to the instant messaging platform, allowing users to link the same account to a secondary smartphone.
According to the beta version of the update, WhatsApp lets users link up to four Android phones to their primary account and they get to access all the regular WhatsApp features and message encryption. However, there’s no fresh report on whether the feature will come to iPhone and Apple devices.
