How many times have you wished that WhatsApp was available on a web based platform beside the smartphone platforms? People didn’t refrain themselves from using though; there were emulator apps to the rescue. But using WhatsApp via emulators was indeed a troublesome job and the time it took would simply dishearten you. Taking all these issues into concern, WhatsApp has finally released a web version. You don’t need an emulator, simply head over to WhatsApp’s website, scan the QR code that shows up and you will be logged in into their system. The messages you receive on your smartphone device, will show up on web platform as well.
How to Use WhatsApp Web Platform?
The WhatsApp web interface is available on this link here. Clicking on the hyperlink directly leads you to the WhatsApp website. The platform best loads on Google Chrome browser; other browsers might not be compatible with the web platform. A QR code would show up within few seconds and an option would be there to keep your WhatsApp signed into your computer. This platform currently works in all Windows platforms but not Apple; WhatsApp states that Apple’s restrictions wouldn’t let WhatsApp web platform pass through. Mac users would probably have to wait another few months.
WhatsApp on Other Platforms
WhatsApp has been a very popular text messaging app for the past few years. It uses a mobile number as user ID, there’s no password. Users don’t need to log in; the app is always active like the stock phone messaging app. However, users can avail features like limiting ‘Last Seen’ or blocking unwanted contacts for privacy concerns. The app is available on all smartphone platforms of today; even old school Symbian users get the advantage. Bringing WhatsApp to web interface was something very much desired by the WhatsApp users.
However, the web platform was reported to not work for many versions. The features are being rolled out currently and might not work with all IDs. You need have the latest version of WhatsApp installed on your smartphone to sync properly between your smartphone and the web interface.
WhatsApp requires a yearly subscription after the first year is over. For such a versatile messaging app, we would happily pay the subscription. Try out the messenger today if you haven’t already.
