Windows users now have access to WhatsApp’s new desktop app. With the new update, you can expect faster speeds, enhanced security, and advanced search capabilities.
WhatsApp, owned by Meta, continues to develop new features. It was in this context that the platform, which has been focusing on cross-device messaging and calling for quite some time, finally announced its updated desktop application for Windows. It offers faster speeds, better security, and more advanced search capabilities.
New features and less resource usage:
Recently, Whatsapp made several improvements to its desktop app, including faster device connections, better syncing, link previews, and stickers. There is, however, a plan to take this experience to the next level with the platform.
WhatsApp announced today that it would support group video calls with up to 8 people and voice calls with up to 32 people for Windows users. The platform plans to raise these limits further in the future after it has been updated with end-to-end encryption. In addition, the new version is more stable and consumes fewer resources than the Electron framework.
Applications built with the Electron framework today use a limited amount of the operating system. Due to the fact that this application is native, or designed specifically for Windows, it will now run much faster and more reliably. The new WhatsApp application is currently available in the Windows Store.
