WhatsApp for iPad is on the Horizon: WhatsApp for iPad is currently in development. Previously, users could access WhatsApp on their iPads via the web version, but there was no native app. In contrast, the most recent version of WhatsApp Beta on TestFlight is now compatible with iPad as well. According to WABetaInfo, participants in the WhatsApp Beta for iOS program are required to utilize the new iPad version. With the launch of the native WhatsApp for Mac last month, Apple users can now access the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices. Let’s examine what the new WhatsApp beta update for iPad has to offer.
WhatsApp for iPad is on the Horizon
Soon, native WhatsApp for iPad will be available.
WABetaInfo, a prominent website for tracking WhatsApp beta, has published a screenshot of the native WhatsApp for iPad interface. Due to the large display, WhatsApp for iPad appears to have the same split-screen interface as the Mac app, as seen in the screenshot above. On the right is the main interface with the top and bottom toolbars, while on the left is the current chat. Existing WhatsApp for Mac users will be able to begin immediately.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for Beta must be installed on both the iPhone and iPad in order to set up WhatsApp on the iPad. Open WhatsApp on the iPad to display the QR code, then scan it using the iPhone by navigating to WhatsApp Settings > Linked devices > Link a device. After linking, users will be able to autonomously use WhatsApp on iPad without their iPhone being connected to the internet.
In addition, because WhatsApp for iPad employs companion mode, it can be paired with both iOS and Android smartphones. In addition, users will be able to communicate on WhatsApp for iPad even if their mobile device is turned off. The application will synchronize your WhatsApp conversations across all linked devices. The messages will be encrypted end-to-end across all devices to safeguard the user’s privacy.
WABetaInfo observes that the iPad version of WhatsApp, like WhatsApp for Mac, has limited functionality. iPad users cannot send live location updates or post status updates, for example. Nevertheless, given that it is still in beta, we can anticipate the Meta-owned chat platform to bring out additional features, enhancements, and bug fixes with the stable update.
There is currently no information regarding the stable release of WhatsApp for iPad. Nevertheless, we can presume that it will be available in the coming months.
