WhatsApp desktop version does not support audio and video calls. As a good alternative you can use Skype. Here is how to install Skype in Ubuntu.

If you are really interested in using WhatsApp, then the solution is to install an Android emulator such as Genymotion and within that emulator install and use WhatsApp. This will enable the video and audio calling features.
