New Delhi: WhatsApp has become ridiculously popular around the world and while the people have come to rely on the app as much as the next person. We’ve never liked the fact it can be accessed only on the phone. Yes, there are initiatives to make Whatsapp available at PC. If one hates shuffling between the mobile and PC at work just to be able to use WhatsApp, there’s finally some good news for them.
WhatsApp has announced the launch of a new service called WhatsApp Web.
“Today, for the first time, millions of you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on your Web browser,” the messaging app said via a blog post. “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.”
Simply typing ‘web.whatsapp.com’ and as long as one is using Google Chrome, he’ll be given a chance to scan a QR code on the desktop screen via the WhatsApp app on the mobile provided the user is using the latest version of WhatsApp on Android, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry.
