WhatsApp is reportedly working on a Desktop App for MacOS, which would allow users to link their device from WhatsApp beta for Android or iOS to WhatsApp for MacOS. According to a report by WABetaInfo, a service that tracks new and upcoming features on the encrypted messenger, MacOS is finally getting a WhatsApp Desktop App.
WABetaInfo shared a screenshot from the new WhatsApp Desktop App for MacOS, which shows that when you launch the app for the first time, you need to link your phone by scanning the QR code. This is similar to WhatsApp for Windows, which means that users will be able to link their Android devices to WhatsApp for MacOS and don’t need to switch to an iPhone.
Additionally, the report states that the company has improved the interface and it will be easier to use WhatsApp on the Mac and its native app built with Mac Catalyst. However, the app is still under development and the company has not announced any release date for a global debut.
Furthermore, WhatsApp has given group admins more power by adding the ability to delete messages for everyone is the group. However, the new feature is only available to users of the latest WhatsApp beta and it will take some time before the feature goes public.
