Hi,

First of all, check if you're using the latest version of WhatsApp Desktop and you've at least Windows 10 (64-bit) version 1903 or newer.

Also, check if WhatsApp has permission to access the microphone and camera by going to Start Menu > Windows Settings > Privacy.

If everything is fine, try logging off from WhatsApp on both of your laptops and then login only on the laptop on which you don't have the call option.

hi

thanks , my old laptop in W8.1 so thats why

Yes - the call feature only works with Windows 10 1903 and newer. You can try to update your laptop to Windows 10 if you need the feature on that laptop too.

WA support could not tell me what you did

thanks
