For everyone who is curious about the new version of the WhatsApp app for Windows, pictures and videos have just hit the internet. This information comes from Aggiornamenti Lumia, which usually reveals many Windows applications before official announcements.
New WhatsApp app for Windows 10 and Windows 11 presented
Anyone who uses WhatsApp on PC knows that the experience is not the best. There is a version in the Microsoft Store, but it is practically based on the web version of WhatsApp. However, it uses Electron to incorporate these web technologies into a more traditional app format. However, this has a problem. It’s just that the performance isn’t really good.
Now the new version of WhatsApp is UWP based. It uses a XAML UI language and comes with a truly native Windows app. It also runs very quickly. The current version takes a little longer.
The new WhatsApp app will be available for both Windows 11 and Windows 10. However, the design looks like it was made more for the previous version. However, there are some details of Windows 11, as a kind of adaptation to the desktop in the sense of XDA.
In addition to messaging, the new app also supports video and voice calls. But there is one more detail that is also very interesting. In fact, it’s a drawing tool that you can use to draw a picture and share it in the app.
However, the new app includes a number of settings that are also available in mobile apps. Therefore we have access to privacy settings where we can choose who can see when we are online or not, manage profile, conversations, notifications and storage.
First revealed by the WaBetaInfo website two years ago, it was thought that this would no longer be the reality. However, the app has really materialized and so it’s arriving very soon.
