WhatsApp is one of the most commonly used instant messaging applications, offering many features such as sharing images, videos, documents, voice recording, and even enabling users to make internet video and audio calls. Now Facebook has also launched a web version of WhatsApp to cater to a wider audience, but it is certainly not as feature-rich as the app. To be more precise, one of the most significant features that the WhatsApp Site lacks is the ability to make video and audio calls.
That being said, the simplicity and stability that laptop offers are missing on the smartphone somewhere and if you’re looking to make Windows laptop or computer video calls from WhatsApp then you’re out of luck here as Facebook offers no official method for this.
There is, however, still a way for users to make video calls from WhatsApp using their PCs, and here’s how to do it.
You’ll need a strong and trusted Android emulator, WhatsApp apk file, active SMS telephone number, or call service to do so. Now, the WhatsApp apk file can be downloaded from the official WhatsApp website.
1. Download and install any trusted Web-based Android Emulator on your laptop or device.
2. If the emulator is installed and running, sideload and launch the WhatsApp apk file.
3. Now follow the on-screen instructions for setting up WhatsApp which includes entering your phone number, giving required permission including files, camera and microphones, etc.
4. Once done, add a phone number to the emulators’ directory or simply open WhatsApp if you used the same Google account as your phone, search the contact and tap the video call icon to start a call.
Note: Android emulators are third-party software, make sure you download a trusted one. Also, due to the download of the emulator, Gadgetsnow will not be responsible for any data and privacy issues.
