Legacy App – Discontinued

This app is no longer maintained as WhatsApp can now be officially installed as an app on iPad via Safari. This means WhatsApp can also eventually support for native features like push notifications.

Install WhatsApp Web as an app via Safari:

  1. Update to iPadOS 16.4+
  2. Go to web.whatsapp.com in Safari. Ensure Request Desktop Site is enabled (it is enabled by default).
  3. Tap the Share button.
  4. Tap “Add to Home Screen”
  5. Tap “Done”.

WZP Summary:

WZP for iPad (formerly WhatZapp) allows you to use WhatsApp on your iPad as a web app wrapper, mitigating the lack of iPad support for WhatsApp by Meta.

  1. The WZP app on my iPad is displaying the message:

    “Environmental variables not found.”

    I have tried deleting and re downloading several times.

    WhatsApp now only works via Safari – not ideal.

    1. Hi,

      Apologies for the error – we have verified that this should be resolved as of this comment. The app should auto-update if you close and reopen the app. If you are still stuck, you may delete and reinstall (again).

      Note that you can already install the official WhatsApp Web as an app if you use iPadOS 16.4 and later. Just tap the share button from Safari and then tap Add to Home Screen, and WhatsApp Web will function as a normal app. Thus, as WZP is an unofficial client that offers less functionality than the official installable webapp, it has been discontinued and no future updates will be available.

  2. Hello!
    Since some days the app doesn’t work anymore and I receive the message “ Environmental Variables not found.”
    What can I do?

    1. Hi Roman,

      This appears to be a bug. Please try deleting and reinstall the app – that should resolve the issue.

      Note that the app is no longer maintained as WhatsApp can now be officially installed via Safari in iPadOS 16.4, with support for features like push notifications. If you can update your iPad, you may consider using the official web app instead.

  3. Hi

    Where can I see the pdf file that is downloaded?
    I received a note that the file was downloaded but I can’t see anything

        1. Hi,

          Click on the “Download on the App Store” button above on this page while in your iPad, and you should be redirected to the App Store, allowing you to tap “Update” to perform an update.

          Can you try that?

    1. Hi Paulo,

      Thanks for your reply. Sorry for your experience with the app. This functionality was previously included, but it appears that for now the ability to download voice messages, pictures and files are broken. Thanks for helping me find out this problem and I will fix that in the next update.

      (Obrigado pela sua resposta. Lamentamos a sua experiência com a aplicação. Esta funcionalidade foi incluída anteriormente, mas parece que, por enquanto, o download de mensagens de voz, imagens e arquivos estão quebrados. Obrigado por me ajudar a descobrir este problema e vou corrigir isso na próxima atualização.)

    1. Sorry for your experience with the app.

      I don’t speak Russian, so I usually translate messages into English. Unfortunately, your message could not be translated properly with Google Translate. Can you please explain the problem in English instead? Thanks.

  5. Почему нечего не работает у вас на ватсабе ! У меня iPad 4 , iOS 10.02 загрузил предложение ваше и все стоит нечего не включается

  6. If i update Whatzapp to the new version for iOS 10, do i have to re-login / sign up again?
    or it would automatically reload my credentials.

      1. Спасибо, что работаете над приложением, что там нет рекламы! Но после выхода вашего обновления всё равно программа не работает.. При попытке добавить фото в сообщение, она просто закрывается, пользоваться невозможно..

        1. Hi Татьяна Татьяна,

          Sorry for your experience. Thanks for informing me about the newer issue. Again, this is a iOS 10 Safari Engine issue, but I will try to fix the problem.

      2. Thank you for your quick reply and the continuous effort to update the app.
        I have an issue with downloading voice messages. it keeps loading and before the message is downloaded, the page refreshes and reloads.

  7. I am currently on iOS 10.0 .2., iPad Pro 9.7. The application no longer works properly. I open it and start chatting with someone, but within two minutes the screen goes blank and all I have is white background. The only way I can get back to the conversations is to force close the app and then open it again. But then I experience the same problem. Is this user error or does there need to be an update to the app?

    1. Как долго ждать обновления?? Уже почти месяц прошёл и ничего не исправлено..!

      1. Sorry for the overdue update. There’s just one problem: the (new?) iOS 10 Safari engine itself is causing problems, not the app itself, therefore, it isn’t easy to fix this problem.

  8. После обновления до ios 10, у меня не работает приложение, пожалуйста исправьте! Невозможно ничего написать, весь экран просто белый.

  9. Hello programmers. Add the option to automatically download attachments,photos,videos. Scrolling contacts,messages – smooth

  10. Boa tarde!
    Poderia me ajudar pois no meu iPad com iOS 9.3.2 a tela do app está branca parece que travou.
