Private and secure one-to-one voice and video calls are now available on WhatsApp’s desktop app, it announced Thursday.

“Answering on a bigger screen makes it easier to work with colleagues, see your family more clearly on a bigger canvas, or free up your hands to move around a room while talking,” WhatsApp said in a statement.

To make desktop calling more useful, it has been made sure that the feature works seamlessly for both portrait and landscape orientation, and appears in a resizable standalone window on the computer screen.

It is set to be always on top so users never lose video chats in a browser tab or stack of open windows, according to the company. Voice and video calls on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted, whether you call from your phone or your computer.

The desktop feature is starting with one-to-one calls, WhatsApp said. It will be expanded to include group voice and video calls in the future.
