WhatsApp is now designed to be accessible on both PC and smartphone. This was made to provide a richer communication experience for users. Basically, WhatsApp Web makes this possible, as it is a computer-based extension of the WhatsApp account you have on your phone.
If you send and receive messages, these will be synced fully between your PC and your mobile device. Thus, you can see them all on both devices. As a result, anything you do will also apply to WhatsApp Web and the other way around.
Currently, WhatsApp Web is only available for Android, Nokia S60, Nokia S40 EVO, iPhone 8.1+, BlackBerry, and BlackBerry 10 mobile devices. Here are minimum requirements in order to enjoy WhatsApp Web.
- It is required that you have an active account for WhatsApp on your smartphone.
- You also need to have the latest version of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera, and Safari, which depends on the Web browser you would want to use as the default.
- Likewise, you must have a stable Internet connection on your PC and your smartphone.
