WhatsApp copied another feature from its rival Telegram with the next update that allows its use in offline mode. Here is everything you need to know.
After discovering that the WhatsApp messaging app will soon change its name to WhatsApp from Facebook, its users are about to receive a big update. In fact, soon the app will be usable even in offline mode, without online connection. It would not be the only function that WhatsApp copies to Telegram, its constantly growing competitor.
In fact WhatsApp has already introduced novelties such as stickers and gifs, which were initially a prerogative of Telegram and which made it more popular than its rival. With this offline messaging function WhatsApp can therefore be used without connection, with a new PC version, disconnected from the smartphone.
In addition, WhatsApp users will no longer have to limit themselves to use only on mobile devices, as the option for use on multiple platforms will soon be introduced, just like Telegram. All these are news leaked from the WABetaInfo site, which often anticipates the news of Zuckerberg products. According to the source, these updates will be started by the end of 2019.
The new WhatsApp update
The choice is part of that transformation process implemented by Facebook to merge all its apps, including Instagram. WhatsApp is in fact part of the products owned by Zuckerberg, while Telegram is not under the domain of the Facebook company. In 2015 WhatsApp had introduced a web version of the application with the same functions as that for mobile devices. Many people use this feature on a PC during work. But to make WhatsApp Web work you must have your smartphone turned on and connected online.
So with the update, the web app could work even if the phone turned off or didn’t have internet access. The detachment from the now obsolete function that does not allow the use of WhatsApp on different devices, would make it possible to approach the comforts offered by Telegram. In fact the second messaging app is in constant struggle with WhatsApp for supremacy, and the updates are constantly evolving.
