In recent news, WhatsApp is set to introduce multi-device support to its application soon. This means that users will no longer need to ensure a ‘main’ device in order to sign in to WhatsApp into another account.
In a nutshell, tablets and iPads will receive a fully native WhatsApp application soon. This information was leaked by WABetaInfo in a recent tweet where it was mentioned that users will be able to use iPads and tablets as linked devices that would run independently without the need for a smartphone.
• Is WhatsApp for iPad a web app? No, it's a native app!
• Will WhatsApp for iPad work independently? Yes.
• Is WhatsApp for iPad already available? No.
• WhatsApp beta for iPad? If you have WhatsApp beta for iOS, you will automatically have the iPad version in the future. https://t.co/aQYBBtW7Sb
