This may not have been your case, but for us “efficient” enthusiasts, we were impatiently awaiting this novelty. And guess what? WhatsApp on Windows finally arrives with the possibility of chatting on WhatsApp, even with the smartphone switched off or offline!
This news will make millions and millions of people happy. And strangely, Meta will be one of them. The firm’s deep desire has always been to make us reachable at all times, whatever the circumstances. All in ultimate comfort and ergonomics. The result: a freshly styled Windows WhatsApp application, with a whole range of innovative features for the app.
The new WhatsApp Desktop available on Microsoft Store
The brand new cast of WhatsApp on Windows is already available on Microsoft Store. All you have to do is go to the platform, search for said application and then start the installation! Nothing’s easier. After a first synchronization with your deviceall you have to do is make the most of it with your contacts!
No more copying and pasting: finally a WhatsApp Desktop messenger worthy of the name!
You know, the old version of whatsapp on windows was purely and simply inspired by the web version of WhatsApp. No particular enhancements, just enough to avoid the hassle of logging into the app via a Navigator. Now, this latest version is fully native and designed for optimal use on the computer. Note that the application is not yet available on Mac – although it may not last very long.
And that’s not all ! Meta better for us with this novelty, starting with the many advantages it offers. Moreover, if we quote you the words of the firm itself? The app is “optimized for your computer’s operating system” so as to, more particularly, “receive notifications and messages when your phone is offline”. Better, it will make you enjoy a “increased reliability and speed”. Awesome no?
As you will have understood, the goal is to get out of the WhatsApp scheme available only on smartphones. Ultimately, using the app should be as easy as using Telegram or, more specifically, Facebook Messenger.
Innovation does not always rhyme with perfection!
Note that you must always use your smartphone to synchronize your account on WhatsApp to Windows. Then, as mentioned above, you will no longer need to have your smartphone handy to receive messages; it doesn’t even have to be connected.
Another important aspect to understand, your messages will be stored on a server and transmitted to each device with which the account is synchronized. This is a network architecture newly proposed by the firm for optimizing the message handling mode. The next step would be to be able to receive messages on different smartphones at the same time.
Let’s continue the momentum of the limitations… It will still not be possible to preview the links transmitted, nor even to have a display of the live location of the contacts. Worse, or rather, inconvenient, we still don’t have the ability to delete messages if the main account device is a iPhone. That said, there is nevertheless a beta version for Macaccessible to anyone wishing to be part of the program.
Of course, many improvements will follow this first distribution of this kind. And, in the end, the WhatsApp app on Windows can finally be considered as autonomous.
