We have very good news for all of us who have a Mac with an Apple processor and who also usually use WhatsApp, since the company has announced that they are already working on a version of WhatsApp for Macs with Apple chips.
Running applications that are special to the Apple processor gives us a huge advantage when running them on our Mac, due to its optimization that takes advantage of these chips.
As reported by WABetaInfothe WhatsApp company would be developing a special version for Macs with Apple processors, and they even give us a little preview of this version with the following screenshot:
As you can see, dear reader, in the screenshot you can see accesses and elements that are native to macOS, such as, for example, the left sidebar with the sections, among others.
The current version of WhatsApp for Mac is based on Electron, a system that offers us high compatibility, but at the same time consumes a lot of resources and memory, so making this change would considerably increase performance and optimization would be the best.
But hey, despite this important announcement, development hasn’t finished yet, so we’ll have to keep waiting a while longer to be able to test this new version of WhatsApp for Mac.
