For the longest time, WhatsApp was only available on mobile phones, but eventually expanded on computers, while the iPad was never introduced. However, according to WABetaInfo, that seems to be changing quickly because it looks like WhatsApp is working on a public app.
This general app is said to be developed with Apple’s Project Catalyst which allows developers to build a single app that can run on macOS and iPads. This means that in the future, WhatsApp users will be able to use the app on their iPads which may be useful for those who use their iPads instead of computers.
Users have been asking for a WhatsApp app for the iPad for a long time, and earlier this year, WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart said of the company. was open to that idea. WABetaInfo later revealed that the iPad app is working, and so it looks like it will come as part of a new public app for macOS and iPad.
The report says that, for the most part, the macOS app will look similar to its current platform but with a few UI tweaks to make it more efficient for computer use. As it is, the desktop version of WhatsApp is a package for the WhatsApp website, so it’s nice to see a standard desktop app that’s better suited for computers.
