In a blog post, WhatsApp, which has some
700 million monthly active users, said that
people can now link their mobile phones with a WhatsApp Web client, allowing
them to write and read messages via their computers.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, there
are a few limitations to this setup. Firstly, those with iPhones are out of
luck due to “Apple platform limitations,” WhatsApp says. The service works with
Android, BlackBerry, Nokia S60 and Windows devices, but users need the latest
version of WhatsApp.

To start, WhatsApp users can visit
Web.WhatsApp.com via Google’s Chrome browser on their computers, where a QR
code will appear. Then they need to open WhatsApp, click a button that says
“WhatsApp Web,” and use their phone’s camera to snap a photo of the code. But,
users’ phones must remain connected to the Internet for the setup to work.

Users can also more easily save images or
videos on their computers using this arrangement. And people like office
workers, who spend much of the day sitting at their desks, can opt to receive
WhatsApp alerts on their computers, effectively uniting their work computers
and their phones.

It is well-known fact that Facebook is keen
to connect users all over the world, whether that’s via their own platform, via
WhatsApp, or on Instagram. 

Asian competitors like China’s WeChat and
Line, which is owned by South Korean Internet portal Naver, have offered
similar functionality for some time.
