Information coming in indicates that that WhatsApp is working on a native desktop client for Mac and Windows operating systems.

From images tweeted by WABetaInfo, the project is looking for translations for specific phrases in the documentation, including what looks like confirmation of multiple clients being developed for the desktop.

If the rumors are true, this would further expand its already ridiculously popular messaging service.

A full desktop client would introduce the potential for voice or video calls, and would  remove the need to keep a browser open or to scan the WhatsApp Web QR code to connect your account to your browser.

This will also make WhatsApp an alternative to services like Skype.

We will be on the look out and keep you informed incase of any new developments.
