WhatsApp has released a beta version of its desktop software for Windows. For quite some time, the Meta-owned messaging network has been working on a standalone PC app. WhatsApp’s PC app has finally been published in beta form. The Beta is now accessible in the Windows Store.
“Get the Beta version and you’ll be one of the first to experience updated features and give comments about the new app,” according to Microsoft. End-to-end encryption is still in place to protect your personal texts and calls. No one can read or listen to them outside of your chats, not even WhatsApp.”
According to a WhatsApp monitoring website, the new WhatsApp’s Windows client includes a multi-device functionality. The PC app does not require your phone to be connected to the internet.
“The app is a beta version, but we’ve tested it and it’s highly stable because it’s native and consumes fewer resources than WhatsApp Desktop, even though some features are still missing: it’s a really good substitute for the current WhatsApp Desktop app,” the company stated.
WhatsApp’s Beta version, which is based on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), will deliver notifications even if the app is not open. A new writing pad feature is also included in the app. Multi-device functionality will be supported. Because the app is still in development, some features will be available later.
