WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging platforms available, but it’s still missing official desktop applications for OS X and Windows.
That could be changing soon, though, according to some leaked screenshots initially published by @WABetaInfo. That Twitter account is known for publishing information pertaining to upcoming builds of WhatsApp. In this case, the screenshots were surfaced from an unidentified source, but very clearly seem to show download options for a Mac app.

Unfortunately there aren’t many details connected to the published images. We can see a download option for Mac and Windows, so it would seem possible that WhatsApp is planning on launching both options at some point in the near future. That would be a pretty big announcement for the messaging platform, to say the least.
Of course, as it stands, there isn’t any official confirmation that this is in the works, but at this point it feels like WhatsApp is a bit overdue for a Mac app. If you’re a WhatsApp user, do you hope there’s a Mac (or Windows, for that matter) app on the way?
