With over a billion daily users, WhatsApp is one of the largest messaging applications in the world. The application is about to get even bigger with its new desktop access, which makes communication even easier.
The web version allows you have to have lengthy conversations, whereas reading would be far more simple, as well as navigation and media sharing.
Moreover, your messages will be automatically synced between the web version and your mobile. For the purpose, you will need to have an Android, Windows, Blackberry or iOS device with a relatively updated version
The first thing you must do is go to web.whatsapp.com on your computer while using a cellular or Wi-Fi connection on your phone. The web version connects with your phone, which makes it mandatory for the phone to be working.
When you open the web address given below, you will see a QR code ready to be scanned through the application. Then, you have to open the application to provide access. Here’s how to do it on the various compatible phone models:
- For iPhone: Settings > WhatsApp Web
- For Android: Open the Chats screen > Menu > WhatsApp Web
- For Blackberry: Chats > Menu > WhatsApp Web
- For Blackberry 10: From the top of the screen swipe down > WhatsApp Web
- For Windows Phones: Menu > WhatsApp Web
Once you click on the WhatsApp Web button, the phone will open its camera so that you can scan the code on your computer. After it is scanned, the web version will launch immediately so you can start communicating with your friend. Note that all previous conversations will open as well.
If you’d like to have the desktop app, rather the web version, then simply download it from the official website for Mac & Windows PC. For the purpose, you will need an OS X 10.9 or higher and Windows 8 or greater. Luckily, the whole process takes only a few minutes, and you are ready to go!
