With more than 1.4 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is by far the most instant messaging app in the world. In 2015, it released a web version that mirrored the conversation from the mobile app.
In order to avail the feature user need to log-in into the WhatsApp Web and you will be able to receive and send messages via PC without the need to touch your phone.
But things are going to change, users could be very soon using a desktop version of Facebook-owned instant messaging application that doesn’t require your phone to be connected to the Internet.
And yes, in according to my rumor, UWP + the new multi platform system = you can use WhatsApp UWP on your PC if your phone (Android, iOS or Windows Phone) is off. https://t.co/PgNZTnOxlj

The report comes from a reliable leakier WABetaInfo, which claimed that instant messaging is building a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) that would work even when the phone is off.
Also it been mentioned that this new app would work on a new multi-platform system which would operate even if your phone was turned off.
Besides, the new app will apparently work in sync with a new multi-platform system to let you access your WhatsApp account on multiple devices as well.
Also as per the report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is also improving their end-to-end encryption, because probably something needs to be changed, seen that the messages must be sent to more devices.
Currently, the new system is under development and there is no information on when this feature is expected to arrive.
