Part of WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption scheme is a necessity for clients to set up the service with a phone as the “main” gadget for an account. The organization declared in July that it was working on next-generation encryption that would empower a true multi-device connection without requiring a connection with a cell phone. As part of that, it seems like WhatsApp is planning a completely native iPad application for the first time.
AppleInsider saw a few tweets this weekend from the WABetaInfo account, an unofficial source of insights concerning upcoming WhatsApp features. The account says that as part of the forthcoming multi-gadget beta, both the iPad and Android tablets would have the option to be utilized as “linked devices” to a WhatsApp represent the first time. A follow-up tweet asserts that it’ll be a native application (as opposed to a web application) and that it’ll work “independently” (as in it’ll run if your cell phone is offline).
There’s no word on when this application and integration will show up; the WABetaInfo account says it’s being worked on and will be released in a “future update.” But on the off chance that you as of now have the WhatsApp for iOS beta, you’ll gain access to the iPad form too. From one viewpoint, a lot of individuals who’ve been utilizing WhatsApp for quite a long time have likely become accustomed to the application not being accessible on tablets — yet multi-gadget support seems like the ideal chance to make WhatsApp work on more gadgets.
