It took more than ten years but finally it can be confirmed that WhatsApp will reach the iPad. The data has confirmed once again WABetainfo and it has done it not only by means of a series of screenshots, but testing the first version of this adaptation of the popular messaging app adapted to tablets. Although, as is usual in companies belonging to Facebook, there is no official confirmation from the company, WhatsApp would reach the iPad in a matter of weeks.
This application will come accompanied by good and not so good news: on the first, WhatsApp for iPad would incorporate all functions and will be compatible with all market models. Among the less good ones, initially it will only support new highs, or what is the same, that would not allow a synchronization of messages with the iPhone, although this restriction will be temporary.
WhatsApp on the iPad will show the same interface that we found on the iPhone, including all functions that already enjoy the phone as calls or video calls and of course, take and send pictures. The development team has also included the split view of the iPad that allows you to divide the screen and work in multitasking mode simultaneously in two windows. The application can also be blocked using the biometric systems of the platform, both facial (FaceID) and fingerprint (TouchID). The app it can also be used in horizontal mode taking advantage of the full width of the screen.
As far as the interface is concerned, WhatsApp for iPad will be very similar to its premium-sister Messenger for iPad and, those who can not wait to try it, can do so by joining the TestFlight beta testers program. Is there a real market to use a messaging application on a tablet? It seems that yes, not only if we stick to the expected of this news among iPad users, but also considering that both Telegram and Messenger have long been in the iPad application store.
