THE WhatsApp CEO, Will Cathcartgave a very optimistic statement to all those waiting for a version of the messaging app at the iPad. In an interview with US media outlet The Verge, Cathcart said he would love to see the app at the Apple tablet. He even indicated that this could come soon.
WhatsApp on iPad is one of the biggest requests from users
Will Cathcart, in his own words, said “We’d love to do it”. Translating into Portuguese he went beyond the verb “adorar”. “We would love to do this”, in free translation, the “this” being the development of a version of the Whatsapp to iPad. There are some hacks for you to access the Whatsapp no chip in tabletsbut nothing better than using a native app for tablet. Today to use the “zap” at the computer you need to scan the QR Code through your mobile app. And it is no longer necessary to keep the smartphone connected to use the version of desktop.
the CEO of Whatsapp not nailed that they will release the version for tablet, but left the possibility open with another statement. “We worked a lot on the technology to support access on different devices. […] That [a tecnologia] would be very important for a app on tabletbe able to use the app without having to have your cell phone on. The technology for this already exists.“. Will we see that this year?
Two-Step Verification Coming to WhatsApp
THE Whatsapp is close to releasing the ‘multiple devices connected’ feature, which will allow users to use their account on more than one device, without having to be connected via smartphone. However, this brings a security issue, which can be a way for malicious users to apply scams, to prevent these issues, the Facebook application is developing support for two-step verification on desktop versions.
Currently WhatsApp, even having already increased the level of security, is seeing a considerable increase in the number of scams carried out on the platform. This ultimately causes the platform to look for ways to keep users less susceptible to these scams, and two-step verification on the web and desktop versions should soon help with that.
