iPad users will soon be able to access WhatsApp. Whatsapp currently undergoing beta testing for iPad and is expected to be released soon to the public.
Whatsapp was not on iPads as it was specifically designed for smartphones. It would not be ideal for iPads as there will neither be account linking nor a user interface for support.
Only a limited number of users are able to test WhatsApp on their iPads before it is released publicly. Beta testing will help WhatsApp to find out all the bugs or issues. Then it will be fixed before it becomes available to a wider audience.
When the Whatsapp iPad app is released, users will be able to send and receive messages, and make video calls or voice calls from their iPads. They can also join group chats. The app will support end-to-end encryption which will make all the communication secure and the users can remain safe.

In January 2022, WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart said in his interview that iPad users had been asking for Whatsapp for a long time and that they were “evaluating” it.
According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp iPad beta app is currently using the 220.127.116.11 version. It includes various features and improvements. Features like a new user interface made for the large screen size of the iPad, the ability to use WhatsApp on multiple iPads at the same time, and support for picture-in-picture mode while doing video calls will be there.
It is still not clear if WhatsApp will release the iPad app sooner or later but since the app is currently undergoing beta testing, it feels like it will be released in a short time.
