WhatsApp Messenger has finally reached the in-vehicle connectivity system through the latest Apple’s CarPlay integration. WhatsApp v2.18.2 for iOS enables push notifications for you to easily communicate with your contacts while on the move. Previously, iPhone and iPad users were required to use Siri integration on their vehicles to interact with the WhatsApp app installed on their devices, but the arrival of the official CarPlay support allows you to receive messages as and when they reach your mobile devices. A dedicated WhatsApp icon will also be available on the CarPlay dash interface to provide easy access.
With the new CarPlay integration, you will be able to check your new messages and can even have them read out loud by asking Siri. You will also be able to use Siri to send messages via WhatsApp to any of your contacts.
You can download the updated WhatsApp for iPhone with the CarPlay integration via the App Store. However, the official changelog on the App Store doesn’t define the integration.
