WhatsApp supports sending and receiving a variety of media: text, photos, videos, documents, locations, and voice calls. It’s an internationally available American freeware, cross-platform, enabling users to stay in touch with friends and family anytime and anywhere. WhatsApp can be used on mobile devices as well as on laptops or desktop computers. This blog post will show you how to access WhatsApp from your laptop or desktop computer and record WhatsApp video calls/audio calls.
One of the great things about WhatsApp Web is that you can quickly type in messages and download images, photos, and videos directly onto your computer. It also provides video calls on a larger screen, ensures clear visibility and sound for both callers and receivers, and allows you to perform other tasks while making a video call through your PC.
The video calling features come at no cost and allow you to easily connect with your colleagues, friends, and family members. Moreover, WhatsApp is not geo-restricted to ensure that you can easily connect with users who are staying abroad.
