The most popular messaging service WhatsApp is now able to communicate with friends from their Computer. WhatsApp has launched this web service yesterday.
Last month, it was leaked that WhatsApp was working on a web service and finally from today they are introducing it to the public. The feature is called "WhatsApp Web," which provides it's users the ability to read and send messages directly from their web browsers.
The feature currently works on Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry, however sadly, there's no web solution at this time for iOS users because of limitations of the platform.
"Today, for the first time, millions of you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on your web browser," WhatsApp wrote in their blog. "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."
How To Configure
1. Update your WhatsApp if you haven't updated, open the application > open WhatsApp menu > tap on WhatsApp Web.
TADA! Here we go!
Keep in mind that you need an active internet connection both in your phone and your computer.
The web version supports desktop notifications so you will be notified when you receive new WhatsApp messages even when you're not checking the web page. The Facebook-owned company is also working on a voice calling feature that WhatsApp will soon launch.
