WhatsApp is soon going to launch a standalone app for iPads. The feature was being tested for a while now and is now in its final stages and will be rolled out soon. Apart from this, the app will soon release multi-device 2.0.
Mark Zuckerberg and Will Cathcart of Facebook in an interview with WABetaInfo, stated that the company is currently working on multi-device 2.0, a standalone iPad app and many more important topics.
Currently, WhatsApp allows its users to access its platform across multiple devices via one account with an active internet connection. The feature of having access to the platform anywhere does come in handy but does not extend maximum usability. To achieve the maximum potential, the company is looking to release true multi-device support.
In the tweet embedded below, you can see screenshots of an iPad being used as a secondary device to the same WhatsApp account.
