The time has come: last year in december it was a rumor, but now WhatsApp is officially available for your web browser.
“The web client is basically an extension of your smart phone” – i.e. news will be transferred from your smart phone to your computer.
- install the app on your smart phone
- activate the internet connection on your smart phone to get the messages
- install the Google Chrome browser on your computer
- take a photograph of the QR-code that is shown on your browser with your smart phone
WhatsApp Web has advantages: you can write messages quicker with a keyboard and read the messages on a large display.
But the new feature has limitations too:
- the smart phone has to be constantly online
- the feature can only be used with the Google Chrome browser
- the feature isn´t available for iPhone users
Nevertheless we have a solution for these problems. iPhone user can use our app, which works in every browser: http://www.xida.net/2015/01/08/whatsapp-use-in-windows/
