Love WhatsApp but wish there was an easier way to use it on your computer? Well now you can, right in your browser thanks to WhatsApp Web!
WhatsApp on the web is a new feature of WhatsApp that allows you to head on over to web.whatsapp.com in Google Chrome, scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and that’s it! You’re paired and ready to continue your chats and conversations, right in your browser instead of your phone. Ofcourse, your phone will need to be connected to the internet for the web client to work, and you’ll need the latest version of WhatsApp installed for this to work.
From the WhatsApp blog post, the instructions are:
Today, for the first time, millions of you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on your web browser. Our web client is simply an extension of your phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device — this means all of your messages still live on your phone.
To connect your web browser to your WhatsApp client, simply open https://web.whatsapp.com in your Google Chrome browser. You will see a QR code — scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and you’re ready to go. You have now paired WhatsApp on your phone with the WhatsApp web client. Your phone needs to stay connected to the internet for our web client to work, and please make sure to install the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone. Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations.
That is pretty awesome! I’m a huge WhatsApp user, so I definitely appreciate this.
Available for Android, and Windows Phone users. Unfortunately not available for iPhone users because of Apple platform limitations. Check it out right over at the link below!
