Whatsapp Desktop Version Will Now Work Without Internet


Whatsapp has been up in news for a variety of reasons lately. The most recent one being how Whatsapp and Telegram aren’t as safe as they guarantee to be and the Quick Edit feature, Whatsapp is known to soon be displaying on its platform.

Amidst all this commotion, Whatsapp has reflected again and is known to have reportedly been working on a desktop version of the app that would allow users to use the messaging app on a PC without having to connect their phone to the Internet.



Desktop Version for Whatsapp?

In 2015, WhatsApp released a web version, wherein you could use Whatsapp exactly in a mirrored way to how you use it on your smartphones, except you’d have to have your phones connected to the internet.

It has recently been leaked by the WhatsApp leaker account WABetaInfo on Friday that the Facebook-owned instant messaging company might be working a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app, along with a new multi-platform system that will let you use Whatsapp on the desktop, even when your phone’s off.

In addition, WhatsApp is also reportedly working on a multi-platform system that would allow users to access their chats and profiles on more than one device with the same account. This multi-platform system will work in synchronization with WhatsApp’s UWP, to offer he standard chat interface on different devices with the same account.

If you give a converging thought into it, this could turn out to be great for Whatsapp, especially with a strong customer base of 1.5 billion active users worldwide.



Some Recent News Hooked to Whatsapp

Whatsapp is allegedly known to add a feature called ‘Quick Edit Media Shortcut’, which will help users edit a sent or received image directly within the WhatsApp media gallery.

Once released, you can operate it by opening a chat to find an ‘Edit’ option. On Android, the option will be in the menu on the top right corner, while iOS users will find it down below. Notably, the shortcut wouldn’t tamper the original media file but recreate a newly edited version that can directly be sent via Whatsapp. It’ll also not likely bring any new editing features but just usual like crop, add text, and draw doodles.

Symantec recently conducted a research which showed that apps like WhatsApp and Telegram and the media files saved on smartphones would easily fall prey to malicious programs into modifying them even before the users get to the original documents. According to the researchers at Semantic, WhatsApp saves files to external storage automatically, while Telegram does so when the “Save to Gallery” feature is enabled. However, neither apps have any provision of protecting users from such Media File Jacking attack.
