WhatsApp on the iMac desktop

Itīs so easy to use with a proper keyboard, but what I haven't found out is if or how to make a video call on there. I find it a pain in the arm having to use the mobile even if it is leaned up against something.
Facebook messenger video works on the computer so WhatsApp must surely.
Can anyone help me out here please?

I found an app called Bluestack. Downloaded this complicated thing, still couldnīt find how to make a video call so uninstalled it.

I seem to remember you can't Jan. I use the PC to chat on Whatsapp all the time and am sure I have seen it's not possible to use the phone part.
