According to a report by AggiornamentiLumia, the WhatsApp app for the Windows operating system is based on the web version of the platform and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. The report further states that the app may be based on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), which means the app will be able to sync in the background and receive notifications even when not running.
As seen in a video, this app is much faster than the web version of the platform. The video further hints that the application has been in the works for some time and was originally developed for Windows 10. Because the app’s search box and chat bubbles are still associated with Sharp Corner, which is not like the design theme of Windows 11.
It is hoped that some new features will be added to the WhatsApp app. As per the leaked video, users will get an option to share contacts, images, videos and other files as well as drawings. According to reports, the drawing feature enables users to sketch up an image and share it with other users within the app. This concept of UWP-based application was first unveiled by WABetaInfo about two years ago. Although WhatsApp has not officially confirmed this yet, according to recent reports, it is expected that it will be available to users soon.
