WhatsApp Beta version now available for download on Microsoft’s App Store

A redesigned writing pad and multi-device support are among the changes included in the WhatsApp Windows app.

WhatsApp has been rumoured to be developing separate apps for Windows and Mac users for quite some time. The WhatsApp Windows beta app, on the other hand, is now available for download. Microsoft’s Windows app store has a beta version of the Windows app available for download. It’s a Universal Windows Platform programme, meaning you won’t need to connect your phone to utilize the Windows app, according to sources.

Microsoft’s Windows app store has a beta version of the software available for download. A redesigned writing pad and multi-device support are among the changes included in the WhatsApp Windows app. Because the software is built on the Universal Windows Platform, you won’t need your phone to be in working order to use the WhatsApp beta app for Windows. Because the app is still in beta, it’s possible that new features could be added or some existing ones will be removed.

Users would have to join their WhatsApp account from “Linked Devices” via a QR Code after installing the app, according to the WhatsApp features tracker. The chats will begin to sync, and you will be able to use and test the new beta app for the first time. Because WhatsApp is still in beta, some functionality (such as archived chats, status updates, and stickers) are unavailable; they will be included in future releases.

You’ll also see a new Feedback option, indicating that WhatsApp is interested in hearing from you.
The goal of developing a standalone app for Windows is to improve the user experience. Users on the desktop will no longer need to connect their phones every time they want to use WhatsApp on the web.
