Limitation in Web WhatsApp for PC

  • This upgrade will work only in Google Chrome Web browser.
  • IOS and Apple users cannot use this facility yet.

Enjoy with this new option from Whatsapp and connecting with your Mobile friends right from your computer. Please note that all your old chat messages history can be accessed in the Web version itself.

Though Whatsapp has made this update newly, a similar method of web facility is already available in other Messenger (Wechat) in which QR code is used to connect with Messenger in Web. It is quite interesting to see how these messenger programmers are thinking so innovative !!!
