In 2015, WhatsApp has introduced a web version with the same functions offered by the mobile app. It was a great turning point, highly appreciated by those who, for example, spend many hours on a PC. But until now, the internet connection of the smartphone was a necessary condition. It seems that soon everything could change.
The news comes from WABetaInfo, one of the most reliable leakers focused on WhatsApp news. It has recently tweeted on the subject. Apparently, the company is developing a UWP (Universal Windows Platform) application that can function autonomously even if the smartphone is turned off.
WhatsApp will work without your phone
And yes, according to the rumor, the new multi-platform system will let you use WhatsApp on your PC if your phone (Android, iOS or Windows Phone) is off.
And yes, in according to my rumor, UWP + the new multi platform system = you can use WhatsApp UWP on your PC if your phone (Android, iOS or Windows Phone) is off. https://t.co/PgNZTnOxlj

At the moment it is a rumor and there is no official confirmation. But the reliability of WABetaInfo should be a good guarantee that something is really moving in this direction. The possibility of using a WhatsApp PC application able to function autonomously would certainly be an appreciable novelty. Which in fact would make the service more similar to that offered by Telegram or other similar platforms.
At the moment no details on possible arrival times, we will monitor the news to bring you novelties on the matter. Always on the subject of changes and improvements to the platform, we remind you that the option to modify the images shared in chats is currently being tested on Android and iOS.
