WhatsApp For iPad | How to Get WhatsApp on Your iPad

WhatsApp For iPad – Technically, WhatsApp has grown over the years to be one of the best instant messaging apps worldwide. It sends messages at light speed and has signals that tell you when your message has been sent, seen, read, and is being replied.

Available in 180 countries in 60 different languages, this software has 2 billion users of which 1.6 billion accesses the app on a monthly basis. This is almost the same amount of users as Facebook. If it keeps up at this rate, Next two-three years might see WhatsApp surpass Facebook in terms of users.

I think WhatsApp is accepted worldwide than any other chatting app because it’s an end to end encrypted instant messaging app. Also, because of its simplicity in chatting and user interface.

WhatsApp allows users to be signed in to one device only at a time because a user’s account is tied to his/her mobile number. Therefore to sign in to a new device, you must be signed out of the old one or use an app cloner.

WhatsApp is available on almost kinds of devices except for some and unfortunately, iPads are one of those devices.

Unlike iOS devices, officially there is no WhatsApp for iPads, at least not for now; this also applies to all devices under the Mac operating system. Although there are updates that WhatsApp plans on releasing its iPad App soon.

I recently saw a tweet that explains that WhatsApp will release an iPad WhatsApp app when the support to use more devices for a single account is ready. WhatsApp is currently working on a lot of things to support multi-access including new features that help manage user’s accounts.

We recently saw WhatsApp release a dark mode for its App, as expected it was welcomed warmly by all users alike. That was because it was highly anticipated, the same goes for these new incoming features. Some of these features include;

  • Multi-Access.
  • The ability of WhatsApp to notify you when another device signed in to your account.
  • Self-destruct messages.
  • Message Verification.
