What WABetaInfo also mentions is multi-device 2.0, which is an upcoming feature that WhatsApp has been working on implementing in an upcoming update.
A WhatsApp spokesperson has previously confirmed that the feature is being worked on in WhatsApp and is still a work-in-progress:
“Multi-device means that users will have the same functionality that is available on the current public versions of WhatsApp Web, Desktop, and Portal, without the need to have your phone connected. Our multi-device capability immediately makes the experience better for people who use Desktop/Web and Portal. And it also will make it possible to add support for more kinds of devices over time.”
In a previous interview between WABetainfo and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the latter teased the fact that WhatsApp on iPad could be a reality.
