The world’s most popular social mobile messaging app is rumored to be developing a PC version of its service.
Dutch blog AndroidWorld.nl has uncovered references to a web client version of WhatsApp while sifting through code connected to the current Android smartphone app.
The code in question also suggests that rather than coming as a desktop app, those of us that want the app on our computers as well as our mobile devices will be able to access it via the web — it looks as if the web app will be compatible with Google’s Chrome browser whether running on a Mac or a PC.
It might seem strange at first to take a mobile service and make it immobile, but WhatsApp wants to compete with Google Hangouts and Apple’s iMessage, both of which work seamlessly across devices.
If you’re working on your computer when a message arrives, isn’t it better that it appears on the desktop rather than on a phone which could be buried at the bottom of a bag?
Continuity of services across devices is set to be one of the standout trends of the coming year. Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 will have features baked in that will let users shuffle documents and content from desktop to handset and even game consoles.
Samsung is also developing its own system for its ever growing product line that will let its smartphone users get notifications on their smart TVs and push computer files and video content between video players, tablets and smartphones too.
