WhatsApp is reported to be developing a feature that enables users to use the messaging service even if their device is off.

WhatsApp has a desktop version of its mobile app since 2015. But the only problem here is that you can only log in to the WhatsApp web if your phone is connected to the internet. Now it appears that this tiny drawback may be removed soon.

WhatsApp is working on a new multi-platform system called Universal Windows Platform (UWP), according to WABetaInfo. This new platform would basically enable users to continue to use the messaging app without their phone connected to the internet.

This information is currently a rumour on the web site, and no evidence of its launch or availability exists.

It is important to note that apps created under UWP only operate on Windows 10 phones. However, WhatsApp, that is owned by Facebook, will soon withdraw assistance for the Windows OS.

The new service is unlikely to be restricted to 10 Windows Users only by WhatsApp.
