WhatsApp is one of the planet’s most popular application used by millions of people in the around the world. The app has already replaced SMS and fast becoming our primary mode of communication.
WhatsApp Web is a great way to extend the features of the messaging platform to the desktop. The web client is easy to set up and use, it has the same visual interface as the mobile version of the app, and messages sync instantly between your phone and the web. Here’s how you can set up and use WhatsApp Web.
First of all what is Whatsapp Web?
WhatsApp Web is what it sounds like: a web portal that lets you mirror your phone’s WhatsApp experience on a desktop browser like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera or anything else you like. In order to keep WhatsApp secure and private, WhatsApp Web is not a separate instance of WhatsApp that lives independently from your phone. Instead, it relies on your phone’s connection to WhatsApp to generate an initial instance and then, by taking a photo of a unique QR code to authenticate, it brings that exact experience to the web. Once you log off from WhatsApp on your phone, the connection on the web is severed.
The best thing about WhatsApp is that almost everyone can use it and it does not require any training. In just a few taps you can learn how to make calls, and send and receive messages, documents, photos, Gifs and videos etc.
Other than families and friends, big organisations have formed collaborative workgroups on WhatsApp to share instant messages for which an email is not necessary.
