Whatsapp is launching a public beta version for its desktop. macOS and Windows users can enrol and join the program and try the latest feature. WABetaInfo said that the public beta version would help the company to improve the multi-device support besides taking feedback from the developers.
When users enrol in the program, they get all the updates. Currently 2.2133.1. was launched to the public user. WABetaInfo said that new improvements had been made in the voice recording feature. Users testing the beta version said that they not only notice the waveforms but also notice a pause option. The website said that this feature is already under development in WhatsApp for iOS.
Beta testers can report if they spot a bug in Desktop Settings, Contact Us, and send a screenshot so the team can understand what’s happening. Whatsapp is also getting ready to be launched on the iPad. With the multi-device compatibility, users can use the messaging app even when the smartphone is not in use.
Whatsapp spokesperson said that this feature would let people use the messaging app without the need to have their phone connected. Multi-device compatibility means that users will have the same functionality that is available on the current public versions of Whatsapp Web, Desktop, and Portal without the need to have their phone connected. The feature improves the experience for people who use Desktop and Portal. The Facebook-backed messaging app will update the new updates to your device automatically. The company is also testing payments buttons in the chat bar.
