How to use Whatsapp web on Computer, Tablet or Laptop?


Daily, WhatsApp transmits 7 billion messages, yet typing each message on the phone isn’t as efficient as typing on a computer or laptop keyboard. The great news is that one can access WhatsApp on even a Windows device in 2 ways, including through the WhatsApp web on a computer, or Whatapp web on Laptop or tablet.

This is perfect for keeping in touch, especially while at work, however, it may also be used when your phone’s battery dies if you don’t have access to one.

It functions because of WhatsApp’s new multi-device functionality, which lets anyone use the application on up to 4 ‘companion devices.’ Other phones aren’t allowed, but there is a loophole if you truly want to access WhatsApp on two devices. Computers or a Facebook Portal are required instead.

For most people, WhatsApp Web is a considerably more appealing option, as it allows you to not only read and answer messages on every device but also share and receive photographs and videos. The best thing is that it’s absolutely free to use and only takes a brief setup before remaining signed in till you deliberately log out.

Even though the web application isn’t the safest option in terms of security, one can now use a browser add-on to check whether it’s safe to use.

How to operate the web version of Whatsapp web on Computer, Laptop or PC?
