WhatsApp for iPad Will Function Like WhatsApp Web, Standalone App for Android Tablets Coming Soon

By January 31st, 2018 AT 9:11 AM

WhatsApp is finally bringing its support to Apple iPads very soon, as it was rumoured a couple of months back. Instead of launching a separate standalone application, WhatsApp is now said to introduce an iPad client for WhatsApp Web, which allows you to connect with your WhatsApp account phone by scanning QR code. It is also said by WABetaInfo that WhatsApp will launch a standalone application for Android Tablets in 2018, but take this feature as a rumour for the moment as there’s no evidence for the Android Tablet application.


But the report adds that WhatsApp will surely launch a client application for iPads in the near future. “It will be a redesigned WhatsApp app that will work thanks to WhatsApp Web.. yes, in order to use WhatsApp on your iPad it will be necessary an active Internet connection on your main device,” said WABetaInfo.

The best part is you can connect your Android smartphone with WhatsApp for iPad as the connectivity is not limited to Apple iPhones. When it was rumoured back in November 2017, everyone thought that WhatsApp would launch a new standalone application for iPads, but turns out to be the instant messaging giant is planning for a client app.

It’s unknown when WhatsApp for iPad will be released. Already, there are various other third-party services to use WhatsApp on iPad with WhatsApp Web. Nonetheless, an official application from WhatsApp itself will make the job a lot easier.

WhatsApp is aggressively adding new features every now and then. Next up, WhatsApp is rumoured to introduce granular controls for group admins, WhatsApp stickers, WhatsApp Pay, and several other new features. In early February 2018, WhatsApp may introduce WhatsApp Pay for the Indian market which allows a user to make P2P transactions based on UPI. WhatsApp Pay is currently in final stages of testing as per a recent report, and it will be open to customers anytime soon.

WhatsApp is also looking to introduce Stickers for WhatsApp to enhance the user experience. But with all these features, WhatsApp will lose its simplicity for which it is known for.
