WhatsApp is that messaging app that is installed on practically any mobile phone. Who does not know Whatsapp? For ten years now, it has allowed us to send free text messages to other devices, as long as they have the app installed. It was one of the first (if not the first) apps that allowed you to send free messages from / to mobile devices, but today it is still based on an outdated protocol that forces you to depend on the phone number, something that could have its days numbered.
Currently, if we want to use WhatsApp from a computer, tablet or even a smart watch, we have to use a version of WhatsApp Web. Launched in January 2015, it is a kind of "mirror" that reflects everything that happens on our mobile, but it depends on it to function. Other applications like Telegram are more modern and they can work on several devices at the same time, regardless of whether it is a mobile phone, a tablet, a computer, a watch or even a Smart TV (I have tested it on an Android TV and it works). This is what the messaging app now owned by Facebook will be able to do, all according to rumors.
WhatsApp on PC free web version
The rumor has been started by WABetaInfo, a Twitter account that analyzes everything in the most famous messaging application on the planet. He was the one who told us about the web version, the iPad version, the stickers, the business version… well, it's always him. The last thing posted is that WhatsApp will use the same servers as Facebook and that this will allow use the same phone on multiple devices at the same time. Taking into account that this is what prevents native versions that are not for mobile phones, we can only think that in the future we can forget about applications such as WhatsDesk or Whatsie, as long as they are not renewed.
BetaInfo says it's a "rumor", but all the rumors that he has released have been fulfilled. The best thing is to remain skeptical, but it seems that the web version will disappear sooner rather than later, and I am glad.

Well, something that the old Messenger already had.
