Improved Performance and Efficiency for Apple Users
After months of beta testing, WhatsApp for Mac has unveiled a brand-new app that is optimized for Apple Silicon Macs. This update aims to enhance responsiveness, reduce battery drain, and improve overall efficiency for users.
A More Consistent Design with iPhone Version
The new app offers a more consistent design with the iPhone version of WhatsApp. It includes all the basic features of the main version, allowing users to send and receive messages even when their primary phone is not nearby.
Missing iPad Version Still a Concern
While this update is a step in the right direction, WhatsApp users are still left without an iPad version. Despite utilizing Project Catalyst, which would make it easier to port the Mac app to the iPad, the company has chosen to only offer the iPhone version for Apple tablets.
Competition with Telegram
WhatsApp has added several new features this year, but it still lags behind its main competitor, Telegram. Telegram offers easier device connectivity, the ability to check all messages across multiple devices, and a seamless backup system when migrating between devices.
Hope for iPad Users
Despite the lack of an iPad version, the release of the optimized Mac app suggests that WhatsApp for iPad may be closer than ever to becoming a reality. This new app provides a glimpse of what iPad users can expect once the software is available for Apple tablets.
