WhatsApp Officially Launches Web Version - Here's How To Get And Use It

WhatsApp has officially launched a web version of the popular cross-platform messenger. This means that you can now use the WhatsApp messenger right in your browser by syncing your phone's app with the browser.

Every WhatsApp app on the Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, and Nokia S60 devices has received a new update that adds a QR Code scanner in it. This feature is not yet available for iOS devices, which means iOS users are not yet able to use WhatsApp on their browsers.

The use of the QR Code is for syncing your WhatsApp with the web browser version, by scanning the code provided by it through your phone.

Here is a step-by-step guide to use WhatsApp in your browser:

An updated WhatsApp menu for mobile devices.

The first thing is that your WhatsApp should be updated on your mobile. If it's not updated already, make sure to update it now.

Then open and scan the QR Code on the site(picture below) with your WhatsApp Mobile app on your phone.

The log-in page of the web version of WhatsApp

Scanning the QR Code on your WhatsApp Mobile app looks like this. To use the WhatsApp web version, your phone must be connected to the internet.

If your phone is offline(not connected to the internet), you will see this message on the web version of WhatsApp. You can only use the web version if your WhatsApp Mobile app is active and connected to the internet. 

WhatsApp's web version will continue trying to connect to your phone.

Here is what you can do with the web version of the WhatsApp:

  • Chat with your contacts
  • Use emoticons and smileys 
  • Voice Recording 
  • Attachment sending
  • Video recording from webcam
  • View your profile and status 
  • View contact info
  • Desktop & sound alerts 

You cannot edit your profile, status and contacts on the web version of WhatsApp. You can also log out of the web version of WhatsApp using the Mobile app.
