WhatsApp Is Coming To Your Computer

WhatsApp has become one of the largest chat apps across the globe and has more than 600 million users. Now, the company has released news of their next move – a web client that allows users to utilize the app on their web browser.

Extension Of Your Phone

The WhatsApp web client isn’t supposed to replace the app on your smartphone , but is supposed to be an extension of it since it will mirror conversations and messages that you have on your mobile device. All this means is that all your messages still live on your phone, but when you’re at your computer, you can easily continue that message from the web, making it convenient when you’re at your desk. Users’ phone needs to stay connected to the web for the web client to work, with creators hoping that this new option provides them with more flexibility. Right now, it’s only available for android and Chrome browsers, with a spokesman for the company saying that they plan to have the same experience for iOS users in the near future (but no set dates have been announced). You can use it with Android, BlackBerry, Nokia S60, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10.

Easy To Use


Users who want to utilize this new option just need to point Chrome to the this website (https://web.whatsapp.com) and then scan the QR code that’s displayed in their browser. They must have the latest version of the app running though. Once you do that, you’re ready to go and can now use the web client when at your desk. As soon as you log into the web client, you’ll notice all your conversations have synced, and this will happen even when your’e away from your computer or have a cellular connection (instead being on the same Wi-Fi network that your computer is on).
