  1. I wish if this whatsapp chrome extension shares the ACTUAL IMAGE file, and not just the image link. Consider adding this setting, as sharing image links is totally pointless.

    BTW, I use it on my Chromebook and really love this extension. Best extension for WhatsApp Chromebook users!!

  2. @Eric: AFAIK, video calling is not supported by WhatsApp Web yet. I guess the WhatsApp Desktop application supports video and voice calling, but not the WhatsApp Web. FYI: WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop are two different application.

  3. please add whatsapp web video call feature to this extension for telephone number links using tel: instead of web links? or create a new extension for this video calling feature only?

    The use case for me is to click any tel: link, which takes me to WhatsApp web video call.

  4. @Gopal: Sorry, this extension supports only text and links. You can share URL of any PDF file, but not the actual file itself using this extension.
