Back in March this year, Meta launched a WhatsApp app for Windows desktop that loaded faster and enabled group video calls with up to eight people and audio calls with up to 32 people. Now they’ve released the much awaited WhatsApp app for Mac, with the same video and audio calling capabilities.
From your Mac, you can now you can join a group call after it’s started, see your call history and choose to receive incoming call notifications even when the app is closed.
The app is redesigned to be familiar to Mac users, helping you get more done faster when using WhatsApp on a large screen. You can now share files by easily dragging and dropping into a chat, and can view more of your chat history.
As with WhatsApp on any device, WhatsApp for Mac keeps your personal messages and calls private across devices with end-to-end encryption.
You can try the new app out today by downloading from WhatsApp.com. If you’re happy to wait it’s coming soon to the Apple App Store and you’ll then be able to install from there.
