WhatsApp Web does not allow you to make video connections from your computer. So users wishing to make a video call need to resort to one trick: install the Android app version on their PC using emulators like BlueStacks or Nox. However, it is important to note a few details: your account must be registered on your PC and, as the messenger cannot be used on more than one device at a time, it must be disconnected from your mobile phone.
