Good news for app users WhatsApp on Windows: the desktop version of the famous instant messaging app will no longer require you to go through your smartphone to connect!

While WhatsApp will soon have new privacy options, and it now allows you to delete a message two days after it has been sent, it now has a native application for Windows operating systems.

WhatsApp: an evolving ecosystem?

WhatsApp has always been unfortunately not an example to follow in terms of openness and ecosystem. Indeed, the application has long limited the use of its services to a certain number of devices and often imposes different constraints when you want to connect to the application from a device other than your main smartphone.

For example, until now, WhatsApp customers on Windows still did not benefit from a native application, specific to Microsoft’s OS. It was then necessary to download the web application or to use WhatsApp from an internet browser.

However, for several weeks now, it is clear that Meta has been working considerably to broaden horizons regarding its instant messaging application. We think in particular of the possibility of transferring your conversation history from an Android smartphone to an iPhone or even the permission for two phones to use the same account.

WhatsApp gets a makeover on Windows

The iOS and Android versions of WhatsApp aren’t the only ones getting some welcome changes. In a note posted on the app’s website, as shared with us by The Vergewe learn that WhatsApp now has a native version on Windows, downloadable from the Microsoft Store.

This new WhatsApp application on Windows offers a slightly redesigned interface and remains faster and more responsive. But the greatest novelty brought by the arrival of this app lies in its ability to (finally) offer you the possibility of sending, receiving and synchronizing messages without you needing to use your smartphone. In other words, the Windows app now works independently of your phone. A revolution (or almost) for regulars of WhatsApp on PC.

This is good news, which should delight many WhatsApp users. This new Windows application is already available for download on the Microsoft Store. As a reminder, we learned last month that WhatsApp was also getting a makeover on macOS, with Apple Silicon compatibility.
