iPads, android tablets to soon be allowed as WhatsApp’s linked devices

Lahore (Nut- DesK)

Latest media reports on WhatsApp , says the multimedia messaging app is adding multi-device support to now include iPads. Years after the service’s launch, its beta version today has revealed it will work on an iPad.

WhatsApp allows both iPhone and Android users to use the service but currently, it doesn’t have native app operation available on iPads. As per the beta version being tested as we speak, things will soon change.

WABetainfo revealed in its tweet that “multi-device 2.0” is included in the latest beta underway with WhatsApp. The feature enables WhatsApp to be used across multiple devices, including in a browser and desktop, but not with a native WhatsApp app for iPad OS.

Thus, instead of using a browser to access WhatsApp, the second-generation version of the feature will use a native version of the app for iPad OS to enable multi-device support.

It is claimed the iPad version will work independently, though conversations should also synchronize between the iPhone and iPad as well.Though mentioned in the beta, there’s no separate iPad OS app for testing yet.
