WhatsApp Building a UWP Desktop App, to Soon Add Multiplatform Support

WhatsApp could let you use the same account on multiple devices

The current WhatsApp web version should not see any change but the major upgrade will be rolled out to Android as well as iOS devices. They say one can use WhatsApp via this App without even turning on their Phone.

Using WhatsApp on multiple devices without cutting corners is not allowed.

WABetaInfo reports WhatsApp is working on a multi-account system which will mean you can use your account on a phone and PC simultaneously or individually. Unfortunately, WhatsApp for Mac is not a full-fledged app, as users must connect their iPhones wirelessly to access their messages.

Well, it is one of the most sought after features which users wanted to come to WhatsApp.

WhatsApp is the world's most used messaging tool, which is fantastic considering it is locked in to mobile devices.

WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging platform on mobiles.

The app will be Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and eventually be available in the Microsoft Store. And, WhatsApp Web will remain the same. Moreover, WhatsApp is also working on improving its end-to-end encryption system for a multi-device system.

And this is not somewhat limited multi-device usage with the Web version.

Thanks to the new system, WhatsApp will push sent and received messages to all devices configured for a specific account, so you can, for instance, start chatting on one device and continue from where you left off on another.

Are our readers excited about a proper UWP WhatsApp app?

For now, there is no confirmation from the company regarding the support for the multi-device support of WhatsApp. That said, we would expect it to be launched some time during this year.
