WhatsApp will adapt to Apple Silicon chips for Mac


WhatsApp has just released a new version of its application for Mac. The latter, available only in beta for the moment, takes into account Apple Silicon chips and their new architecture, a year and a half after the arrival of the M1 chip.

For now, Mac users had to go through Rosetta 2, a software solution developed by Apple that bridges the gap between the M1 (or M2) chip and applications not designed for this new architecture. Thanks to this update to the application for Mac, WhatsApp will finally be able to run at full speed on the latest Apple computers.

A Mac app designed… for Macs

According to the specialized information site WABetaInfo, the new version of the application is currently in its very first beta. Consequence: bugs may appear, making the application less fluid than usual. The site also notes that the application itself has already had the right to an update which focuses mainly on design.

The application is designed for Macs and now offers a sidebar. The small bar could allow for better access to chats or calls. According to the first feedback, this version of the application would be much faster than the previous one.

No date given for update

For the moment the instant messaging application has not given a release date for this new update. According to the information we have at the moment, this version of the application designed for the M1 and M2 chips has been tested internally for three weeks and the public beta test has just started.
