If you use Skype for Windows, you may know that while receiving a Skype call, Windows OS automatically lowers the volume of other applications. For example, if you have the Spotify application running on Windows, receiving a Skype call will automatically reduce the Spotify volume by up to 50%.

This thing is not done by the Skype application. Your Windows PC has a feature that reduces the volume of other sounds whenever it detects communication activity. This means that even while receiving a WhatsApp call on a PC, the volume of other sounds will be reduced.
