WhatsApp arrived 10 years ago to change the way we communicate. It revolutionized our lives, connecting us with thousands and thousands of people from all over the world through our mobile phones. A decade later, the instant messaging application seems not to have enough to count on More than 1.2 billion users worldwide. For that reason it has been proposed to expand this figure and to achieve this, the company, owned by Mark Zuckerberg, could be preparing the expected version of the 'app' for iPad.
Until now, all those people who wanted to use WhatsApp on their iPads had to download applications created by third parties or use the web version of the platform. In the latter case, users needed an internet connection to connect to the service and check their messages. Something that could change thanks to the new version for iPad on which the 'app' could be working.

It would be, therefore, a version very similar to the one that already exists for iOS, so it would have the same functions found in the iPhone. According to WABetaInfo, the features are exactly the same: notes and voice calls, video calls and Touch ID support, to block the application, among others.
However, there would be a difference, which would focus on the appearance of the platform. The iPad version could have an interface similar to that of WhatsApp Web, with the contacts on the left and the chats on the right. In this way, it would take advantage of the entire screen and offer convenience to users when looking for a conversation.
For now, WhatsApp for iPad is not available even in beta. When it is, according to Gizmodo, you can try joining the betatesting program of WhatsApp Messenger in TestFlight. As expected, it is a well-known program. So you have to check periodically if there are free holes to access.
