Though the WhatsApp roll out is currently begun on Chrome for Windows desktop browser, the management at WhatsApp says it will add support for other browsers “soon.”
“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,” said WhatsApp in an official blog post.
“Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations,” the company added.
Recently, WhatsApp has reached a milestone of “half a billion people around the world.” Who are sharing more than 700 million photos and 100 million videos every single day, the company notes.
To connect, your Chrome web browser to WhatsApp client, users must open “web.whatsapp.com” URL in web browser URL box. You will, then, need to scan the QR code inside the WhatsApp on your phone and your WhatsApp mobile app would now be paired with the WhatsApp web client.
However, for the WhatsApp web client to work, you must stay connected to the Internet.
