One of the features that made WhatsApp great is the free worldwide internet call feature that enables you to call your family and friends from any part of the world as long as there is Whatsapp installed and data connection but there are some questions being asked whether WhatsApp call can be possible while using it on a Laptop and the answer is YES you can.

Some Laptop can easily receive and make calls just the way you can make and receive calls with your phone because they have speakers and mouthpiece but if your laptop lacks such capabilities then get yourself a nice earphone and you are good to go.
