The new feature to the group would allow the group administrators to determine whether or not they want frequently forwarded messages shared in the group chat. As yet there are no details on when the new WhatsApp iPad app will launch, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know. On one side of the screen, users will see their chat conversations and the other half will consist of the detailed chat. The move should be seen as one to stop the spread of fake news, misinformation and spam on WhatsApp. Apparently, WhatsApp supports iPhones when it comes to iOS, but for some reason it does not support iPads. The "Frequntly Forwarded" feature again limits what goes on a group, and gives admin more control over group content. The popular messaging app has been spotted testing on the iOS tablet and is expected to be released soon. Apart from this, WhatsApp also rolled out authentication feature for iPhone earlier this year, so it is possible that the company might bring the same functionality to the iPad version as well.

However, according to the company, an iPad-friendly WhatsApp app is now under development, although the release date is still unknown.

Facebook-owned photo-messaging app WhatsApp has introduced its "audio picker" with a new user interface (UI), allowing users to choose a total of 30 audio files to send at once. However, WABetaInfo says that the support might be available in the next beta updates on TestFlight.

This app is already working on the much anticipated "iPad" support, which is being tested on features such as "Touch ID support", "Split-screen" and "Landscape mode". The website stated that the feature is now under the TestFlight server and is not available for public use.
