WhatsApp working on new app for Windows 10

WhatsApp is working on a new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app for Windows 10, according to a tweet published by WABetaInfo.

WABetaInfo, which tracks WhatsApp’s beta updates to find upcoming features, confirmed that the UWP version of the app would be available by the end of 2019.

UWP apps are developed to run on a variety of Windows 10 devices, which means this version of WhatsApp may be able to run on both Windows desktops and compatible Windows Mobile smartphones.

The UWP version of WhatsApp will be available for download from the Microsoft Store once it has launched, meaning desktops running Windows 10 S will also support the application.

WhatsApp has been dropping support for older Windows Mobile operating systems, and it is unclear whether this upcoming version of the app will support Windows 10 Mobile.
