WhatsApp may be working on Windows app

WhatsApp is one of the few developers that has consistently provided updates to its Windows Phone app, but a report from Windows Central suggests that WhatsApp is actually preparing to deliver a decent desktop app, TheNextWeb reported on Saturday.

WhatsApp, a messaging service owned by Facebook, is reportedly working with Microsoft to provide a perfect desktop app.

WhatsApp is one of the few developers that has consistently provided updates to its Windows Phone app, but a report from Windows Central suggests that WhatsApp is actually preparing to deliver a decent desktop app, TheNextWeb reported on Saturday.

The concept art of WhatsApp’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) version was shown on Behance before it was immediately removed. It appears to be a native Windows app with a UWP design tenet like Acrylic Transparency, the report said.

In addition, a project description suggests that Microsoft and WhatsApp are working closely on the project.

Rewinding a bit, WhatsApp already has an app for the desktop, but it’s basically a port for the company’s web app.

While the web app is quite functional, it misses important features like voice and video calling.

This UWP project, on the other hand, clearly shows the buttons required for the call. It is also very beautiful to look at.
