Officially WhatsApp company has released this new feature ‘WhatsApp Web‘. So by using this new feature, we are gonna use Whatsapp on our PC/Laptop. 🙂

Till now whatever we did on the mobile Whatsapp, the same things we are gonna do on the web browser Whatsapp.

“WhatsApp Web is a computer based extension of the WhatsApp account on your phone. The messages you send and receive are fully synced between your phone and your computer, and you can see all messages on both devices”, said the company.

Steps to use Whatsapp on our Pc/Laptop/Tablet – Web Browser:

2) Now open Whatsapp on your phone and go to Menu > ‘WhatsApp Web‘.




3) Now when you click ‘WhatsApp Web’ on your phone, a scanner will open. Now you need to scan the Qr code on the chrome page of step 1 by your mobile. So scan the code by placing your phone cam before the Qr code on chrome page.
