Now, WhatsApp development team is busy to create a desktop version that works without a phone. A report has revealed that Facebook-owned company is testing a PC Web app that doesn’t require any smartphones to be connected to the Internet.
On last Friday, WABetaInfo tweeted that the company might be working on a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app along with a new multi-platform system that would work even without smartphones.
Besides that, the instant messaging platform is also working on a multi-platform system that would allow users to run one account on multiple devices simultaneously with access to chat history, profiles, and another backup; even it has support across platforms such as iOS and Android. This system would work in synchronization with WhatsApp’s UWP that will enable users to use WhatsApp on their computer without the need for an Internet connection on the phone.
With the new system, WhatsApp is also improving their end-to-end encryption, probably because something needs to be changed, seen that the messages must be sent to more devices.
For now, there is still very little information available about this new web app development. That new system is still under development process. So, we'll have to wait for its appearance as worldwide. It’ll be interesting to see when the social messaging platform is planning to roll out this feature.
