There’s lots going on with WhatsApp at the moment, and it’s hard to keep up with what’s actually happening and what’s rumour. The latest – which is probably going to turn out as true – is that WhatsApp is working on a desktop client for Mac and Windows.
WABetaInfo noticed the reference in WhatsApp’s code – as it does routinely – and let the cat out of the bag. Allegedly, WhatsApp is allegedly working on desktop clients for different operating systems. Of course none of these rumours are actually substantiated or confirmed, so whether the company will be launching a desktop client or not can’t be proven at this point.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
At the moment it seems logical for a move like this, although many users are happy using the browser-based client. I would actually like to have a desktop client, but many other users would disagree. There are times when many users would like to separate the use of their mobile device from WhatsApp. I am one of those users. Creating a standalone client would make WhatsApp independent of a mobile device and would open it to many new features.
