As per the latest news, Whatsapp is spotted testing a voice and video call feature and is now in beta mode. And it looks like this update might roll out soon for all the users.
The Guardian’s Alex Hern was the first one to spot the feature on the web Beta version. He posted a Tweet with a screenshot where there are two new buttons for voice and video calls. On both, the icons “beta” is written, which confirms that the feature is in the beta testing phase. However, there is no official confirmation about the release, but we can say Whatsapp might launch it soon.

Earlier, a similar update was shared by WAbetainfo, which informed Whatsapp is testing a new feature for its Desktop app. They shared screenshots of the calling options available on Whatsapp Web.
In the screenshot shared by Hern, we can see the voice and video calls buttons are available next to the contact’s name. It is said that when you will make a call from your desktop, a small window will be opened with a profile picture of the user, the name, and the end call button, mute the call and switch to audio or video call.
Apart from the normal call feature, the Group Voice and video calls are also being tested from Whatsapp web. In the coming weeks, the Whatsapp beta users might see this feature. But when will it be available on the stable version, there are no reports.
This feature will be quite helpful for people for making group calls from the PC itself. You can also do a professional video conference without asking for any password to join the meeting.
