Articles about Whatsapp Web

WhatsApp Web is the name of the web client of the Facebook-owned messaging service, WhatsApp. WhatsApp Web was announced by the messaging service's co-founder Jan Koum through his Facebook page in early 2015. WhatsApp Web essentially mirrors your WhatsApp conversations from your phone, to your web browser. To use the feature, you would need to scan a QR code displayed on the computer screen using your phone's camera. This would authenticate the session and open WhatsApp messenger for you in the browser window. To use the feature, your phone would need to remain connected to the Internet even though you would be using WhatsApp on your desktop browser. As of August 2021, WhatsApp's desktop app for the Windows operating system still relies on the WhatsApp Web protocol to function. The messaging giant is expected to roll out multi-device support that could kill WhatsApp Web as a feature since each device would independently be able to connect to WhatsApp's servers. This could also eliminate the need to have a phone constantly connected to the internet in order to access WhatsApp on a computer.
