Computer for a small group of users by the end of last year.
As with the current video call feature, the new feature of the front-end version of the platform promises to provide the same encryption process from one end to the other, meaning that WhatsApp or the company that owns it will not have the platform. Will be able to listen to the call made through.
Despite this, the application of the platform for office devices will lack the conference calling feature, and will initially be limited to supporting individual calls from one party to another.
