Wed 17 August 2022:
Meta-owned One of the most widely used platforms for instant messaging is WhatsApp, which users may use on a variety of devices. For the platform to operate more efficiently,
Updates and new features for WhatsApp occasionally appear. This time around, WhatsApp has released a brand-new app for Windows users that no longer requires users to link their phones to send, receive, and sync messages.
The updated Windows app is now out of beta and accessible for download on the Microsoft Store, according to an update on WhatsApp’s website, which was first reported by The Verge.
What Has Changed with the new WhatsApp app for Windows Users
Earlier, users on Windows had to download WhatsApp’s web-based desktop app or access the messaging service from their web browsers.
So, let’s have a look at what’s new with the freshly launched app:
- The new app is native to Windows, which, as WhatsApp explains, should make the app faster and more responsive, the report said.
- The redesigned WhatsApp has a slightly cleaner interface when compared to the previous version of the app but otherwise does not look all that different.
- The most significant change is that users no longer need to keep their phones online to sync messages between the phone and the desktop app. WhatsApp said it is currently working on a native app for macOS as well.
The multi-device functionality of WhatsApp is completely operational and has exited beta. This provides end-to-end encryption and enables users to connect up to four devices to their WhatsApp account without using a phone.
