Popular messaging application WhatsApp on Thursday rolled out a web version of its application. In its official blog WhatsApp said “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.”
Now mobile users will have an additional platform through which message can be sent and received. Now its using Google chrome browser to mirror conversations and messages from mobile devices. This means after activation you can access your messages through the browser. All messages will also remain in your mobile device.
To connect your web browser to your WhatsApp client, simply open website of whatsapp 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 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 this facility is not available to iOS users. In its blog WhatsApp said ” Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations”. However, it will be available for android, windows phone, Blackberry, Nokia s60 and Blackberry 10 OS.
