WhatsApp Web: WhatsApp Desktop Gets A Design Update

WhatsApp has rolled out a number of new features over the past few months to improve the user experience. Each update has received positive feedback, and Meta’s proprietary platform seems to be working overtime this year to bring customers a more personalized desktop app.

We learned in 2021 that WhatsApp is working on a separate desktop client for Windows. However, the program has been available for download in the Windows App Store for some time, but it is currently still in the beta phase. It was developed with the aim of having a dedicated Windows app that eliminates the need to open and use WhatsApp Web through browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and others.

The app includes Ink and cross-device compatibility, currently based on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) instead of Electron. However, it seems that the development team is now considering incorporating it into Windows 11’s Fluent Design.

This was spotted by Windows leaker @FireCubeStudios in a tweet noting that the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Windows has a different interface.

You’ll see rounded radio buttons, drop-down lists, and other features that seem more in line with Windows 11’s design code. Although a work in progress, some user interface elements are not yet compatible with Windows 11 and need to be fixed.

WhatsApp Desktop is also heavily dependent on your smartphone and is therefore not completely independent. So far, WhatsApp Web with a cross-device link is your only option if you want to use WhatsApp on your PC without a smartphone.
