WhatsApp finally launches on the Web
The new Web client is actually a simple mirror from the WhatsApp app on your phone, so in order to use it, you’ll need to have an active connection on your phone, not just your computer.
To start, you’ll need to scan a QR code and have the latest version of WhatsApp installed on your phone. You’ll also need to be using the Chrome browser on the desktop.
WhatsApp founder Jan Koum said that due to “Apple platform limitations”, there’s no iOS version on the way for now.
