According to reports, WhatsApp is working on a standalone app for iPad users. References for an iPad app were spotted in the latest version of the WhatsApp desktop app.
WABetaInfo, the popular WhatsApp change tracking website, revealed that WhatsApp is gearing up for a dedicated application for iPad.
“Great news for all WhatsApp users having an iPad device. Our rumour about a WhatsApp for iPad app was real (real like our other rumours as WhatsApp Business and the Facebook infrastructure),” WABetaInfo tweeted.
WABetaInfo also stated on Twitter the WhatsApp Desktop 0.2.6968 app references for an iPad application.
However, it’s still ambiguous that whether the company was planning for a standalone application or will it be just a client application like the WhatsApp Web.
Recently, Whatsapp has rolled out a series of new features like ‘Delete for Everyone’ that enables its over one billion users to revoke their messages in case they sent those to a wrong person or group. The instant messaging app also confirmed group voice calls in its latest beta version of Android in October.
