Whatsapp for your Android Tablets may be a reality soon. The instant messenger giant is reportedly planning to release a native app for iPad and Android tablets. And it will introduce linked device support for Android tablets as part of its effort to improve its secure experience on multi-devices.
WABetaInfo says the new WhatsApp tablet apps will be part of multi-device 2.0, which is supposed to allow people to use “linked companion devices without the need to keep your phone connected,” as the company explains in a support article about the feature.
Whatsapp for your Android Tablets
Multi-Device support allows the users to use WhatsApp on multiple devices simultaneously. It can now run on four devices apart from your Android or iOS smartphone. Earlier, you could only use it with a single device apart from your phone. WhatsApp had allowed multi-device support on WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, and Portal.
The beta version users on iPhone will be able to use the beta version of the iPad whenever it launches. With the new multi-device support, you can now use voice and video calls apart from text messages on the linked device.
Whatsapp has been steadily adding new features to its messaging service and the addition of new devices that can use its service will improve and increase the user base. It recently introduced disappearing messages and later added vanishing photos and videos.
As well as encrypted backups to cloud services and the ability to join video calls after they’ve started. But the multi-device beta will be an opt-in program. That’ll give early access to try a new version of WhatsApp for Web, Desktop, and Portal.
If you join the multi-device beta, you’ll be able to use linked companion devices without the need to keep your phone connected. So what are you waiting for? Try out the new Whatsapp features on all your devices and let us know how it felt by commenting below.
