WhatsApp will soon officially support iPads and other tablets as a linked device, suggests a new tweet by WABetaInfo. Missing native support by the instant messaging platform for the iPad series and a number of Android tablets was one of its pitfalls. However, it now seems the Facebook-owned company is set to fix this with a future update.
The report also mentions ‘multi-device 2.0’ support within the app’s latest beta version, which does show up a linked iPad in a screenshot. This confirms the same, and it now only seems like a matter of time before official support for the tablets is rolled out in a stable release.
“WhatsApp is finally working on multi-device 2.0, and you can use iPad as a new linked device. Android tablets are also planned to support multi-device on WhatsApp for Android!,” the tweet said. Check it out below.
