Until now, in order to use the web or desktop version of WhatsApp users must keep the smartphone connected to the Internet, otherwise it is not possible to use the application.
However, it has been reported that WhatsApp developers are working on an application of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) type in the hands of a new multiplatform system that will allow you to use the app even with the phone turned off.
Within the world of programming there are applications that run according to the type of platform, be it a tablet, a smartphone or a computer. However, for some time the big companies have been working on developing platforms that allow implementing the same code in different teams.
It is worth underlining that the source emphasizes that there is no evidence of what the firm wants to do but without a doubt this would represent a great boost for WhatsApp and a great benefit for the more than 1.5 billion active users worldwide.
This functionality has already been requested for a long time by users as well as the editing of the messages sent. It could be the time when WhatsApp begins to gain more ground by offering users greater versatility.
