Second, WhatsApp may upgrade its web portal to iPad support. Then, you can access it on your iPad just like WhatsApp Web on your desktop or laptop.

WhatsApp iPad is likely to happen now that the platform has already released a companion mode for iPhone. So now users can use the same WhatsApp account on iPhone, Android phone, Android tablet and soon iPad.

WhatsApp has also quietly released the Wear OS beta app for the Pixel Watch and other Android smartwatches. So we can be optimistic about WhatsApp coming to Apple Watch as well. Also, the platform is actively adding new features like channels and chat lock to WhatsApp.
