Microsoft is said to be working with WhatsApp on a new UWP app for Windows 10 devices, including the rumoured, Andromeda. The official UWP flavour of the instant messaging client is specifically being prepared to run on all form factors, like laptops.
The concept photos were published on Behance by a Microsoft designer suggesting that the software giant is working with Facebook-owned WhatsApp to port the app from Silverlight to UWP, and it also provides us with a glimpse into how the new app for Windows 10 could look like.
