WhatsApp Web Version ~ How to Use WhatsApp on your Computer!

WhatsApp Web Version – Making mobile messaging more fun!

WhatsApp is fast becoming one of the most used mobile messengers in the history of smartphones. Facilitating communication between users worldwide, the smartphone’s messaging giant is constantly expanding to dominate its industry.

A couple of factors make WhatsApp a must-use for many. These include;


  • The WhatsApp Web Version – nothing to install.
  • A user-friendly and smart environment.
  • An exciting Video and audio sharing facility.
  • An excellent bookmarking feature.
  • Easy-to-use group chat system.
  • Excellent voice quality.
  • Free for first year, then 0.99 USD per year.

Most smartphone users are still not comfortable with their micro keyboard. While this slows down conversation, switching between modes, trying to locate different buttons can really be a pain.

In order to provide users with a richer communication experience, WhatsApp is now accessible both on mobile phones and computer through the web browser.

WhatsApp Web Version – a richer Experience

WhatsApp Web Version

Using WhatsApp on the web is one very exciting exercise. However, not all WhatsApp subscribers are able to access their sessions through the web.

At the time I’m writing this article, WhatsApp Web App is available only for Android, iPhone 8.1+, Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1,Nokia S60, Nokia S40 EVO, BlackBerry and BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

Note that WhatsApp web version is simply a computer web based extension of the WhatsApp account on phone. Any action taken on the phone will apply to WhatsApp Web and vice versa. The Web version is not another WhatsApp account.

That means for you to be able to use the whatsapp web messenger, you need an active Internet connection on your computer and your Phone and your phone has to be switched on. You’ll also need to use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari as your web browser on your computer.

How to connect to WhatsApp Web Version!

-> To get started, go to web.whatsapp.com on your computer ( use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari)

-> Open WhatsApp on your phone.

  • On Android: in the Chats screen > Menu > WhatsApp Web.
  • On iPhone: go to Settings > WhatsApp Web.
  • On Nokia S60 and Windows Phone: go to Menu > WhatsApp Web.
  • On Nokia S40: Swipe up from bottom of screen > WhatsApp Web.
  • On BlackBerry: go to Chats > Menu > WhatsApp Web.
  • On BlackBerry 10: Swipe down from top of the screen > WhatsApp Web.

-> Scan the QR Code on your computer screen from your phone.

Note however that you can’t be connected on more than one computer at a time. You’ll need to disconnect from one to be connected to the other.

From your phone, navigate to WhatsApp Web to view your logged in computers or to logout from an active WhatsApp Web session.

    Surely there should be some hack to avoid the 0.99$/yr fee .

  • Rocco Msing says:

    I liked the Big screen thing that WhatsApp web has brought to us. Recently WhastApp PC version came up, thought it would be something cool. But, kind of disappointed as it is much similar to the WhatsApp web. Isn’t it? The only diference between WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp PC is, with WhastApp PC you don’t need to browse. Rest is the same.

  • Sezenstil says:

    I better keep WhatsApp limited to my phone only. However I’m curious, If someone somehow scans my QR code and start using WhatsApp for Web from his/her PC, is there anyway that I will know that it is being used by someone else?
