Now WhatsApp has a native app on Windows that works standalone – Digikar

✔️ 2022-08-17 00:17:47 – Paris/France.

WhatsApp’s new app on Windows no longer requires you to bind your phone to send, receive, and sync messages. An update on WhatsApp’s site reveals that the refreshed Windows app is no longer in beta and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

Previously, Windows users had to download WhatsApp’s web-based desktop app or access the messaging service from their web browsers. The new app is native to Windows, which, as WhatsApp explains, should make the app faster and more responsive.

The redesigned WhatsApp has a slightly cleaner interface compared to the previous version of the app, but otherwise it doesn’t look all that different. The biggest change is that you no longer need to keep your phone online to sync messages between your phone and the desktop app. WhatsApp says it is currently working on a native app for macOS as well.

WhatsApp’s cross-device feature has been fully rolled out and is no longer in beta. This lets you connect up to four devices to your WhatsApp account without needing your phone, while maintaining end-to-end encryption.

In April, WABetaInfo found a screenshot of the beta version of WhatsApp on Android which indicates that the platform may soon add cross-device support for tablets. Currently, WhatsApp only lets you link computers to your account, so adding support for tablets (or maybe an extra phone) would only make sense.

The use of linked devices, however, comes with certain limitations. For example, if you’re using an iPhone as your primary device, you can’t erase or delete chats. You also cannot send messages with link previews from WhatsApp’s web, message or call someone who is using a “very old version” of WhatsApp, as well as view live locations.
