How to Change the Default Camera Option on WhatsApp Desktop

WhatsApp Desktop allows you to use the popular messaging service from your desktop or laptop. Rather than having to pick up your phone and reply to messages, you can respond from your computer. Furthermore, you can make and take voice and video calls from the WhatsApp Desktop app, making the app a useful addition to any computer.

Better still, you can change the default camera within WhatsApp Desktop, which means you can swap between webcams, camera apps, and more—something you cannot do in the WhatsApp smartphone app.
