And the WABetaInfo portal has just revealed the first screenshots of WhatsApp for the Apple tablet, where we noticed how the messaging app would work on the iPad. Are there any differences with the version of WhatsApp for iPhone?
Apparently not. Just start the app we will see the classic WhatsAppwindow to accept the terms and conditions of the platform at the same time we can enter our phone number. Obviously, if we use WhatsApp in iPhone, when activating the app on the iPad we will lose the session on the phone because the app, today, does not have multi-device support.
Once we access the app, we find the classic window of chats that can be used in normal or landscape mode, as it happens in the iPhone and Android. Being a tablet being able to use WhatsApp for iPad in landscape mode becomes an obligation.
In the following screenshots of WhatsApp for iPad you can check how, in essence, the version of the messaging app owned by WhatsApp is like WhatsApp for iPhone, with the exception of being an app adapted to larger screens.
In the tablet of Apple are still present the functions of the video call or call blocking by fingerprint and you can make use of virtually all the tools that are used in the version for the phone of the Cupertino.
However, the smartest of the will have realized that there is a subtle difference between WhatsApp for iPad and the app for the iPhone
So, what differences are there with WhatsApp for iPhone?
As you can see, in essence, the version of WhatsApp for iPad is identical to the version of WhatsApp for iPhone. Allows you to keep chats with our contacts in normal or pious format, use stickers and GIFs, make video calls, protect conversations by touch ID, use the WhatsApp status…
The only difference between WhatsApp for iPad and WhatsApp for iPhone that we have found is the disappearance of the camera icon from the chat window since this option is only accessible from the version of the messaging app for the Apple phone. It is unknown if in the final version of WhatsApp for the tablet of the Cupertino will reappear, but it would be logical.
At the moment there is no information about when the guys from Facebook will release this version of WhatsApp for iPad in the Apple app store. However, it is finally confirmed that the company will launch the compatibility of the app with the Apple tablet for everyone.
The version of the world’s most famous best messaging app for the iPad is still in development, but hopefully, this spring will be available for download.
