The Meta-owned platform, WhatsApp reportedly dragged itself into a new place where it can take you on a bonny adventure that is yet to attain a token to enter into a zone.

WhatsApp cross-platform messaging

The recent beta version of WhatsApp shelved a new “third-party chats” option, which allows tech insiders to sense the scent of zephyr across the track. The third-party option will let you access other platforms’ compatibility. The beta shipped just days after the European Commission offered Meta a deadline, quoting that the company has to show itself to other third-party messaging apps by March 2024.

The commission has narrated WhatsApp as a “gatekeeper” and should now compress with obligations under its new Digital Markets Act. Several dots are pointed to outcast a single destination in the digital markets act. It is a pretty extensive process to hold a thing that probably has the best interest of users, but not for platforms like Meta. The act includes 22 services from companies such as Google, Apple, Meta, and more.

The European Commission aims to eradicate an ecosystem that prevents users from promptly searching for an alternative or nonexisting key to open the gates to jump into other apps. In a short time, WhatsApp will be coerced to take to iMessage.

The act also seems to have other companies release dedicated app stores on different devices. For example, you can visit a Microsoft App Store on iOS and install apps immediately. The WhatsApp cross-platform messaging will ease off the constraints and fade Apple’s exclusive hold on its platform. The way of nature always ends up in a nest feeding food to kids; in the meantime, WhatsApp’s take on this one act is yet to be revealed.

Meta will start finding a workaround to build up WhatsApp to send and receive messages from other apps and platforms. Apple’s iMessage, for example, is also built to receive SMS texts. WhatsApp will eventually allow texts from other apps to amalgamate in the third-party chat tabs. It means you can access other conversations and respond to them.
