To use this service, one will have to simply head to the WhatsApp Web website and scan the QR code seen on the desktop via the mobile app. However, this feature has not been rolled out to all the users and will be available in phases. Recently, the service introduced many new features for iPhone users such as the option to mute an individual chat, mark a conversation as read or unread, backup videos and location sharing. In addition, features such as auto loading of older messages was added along with better support for VoiceOver.
WhatsApp for Web is now available for Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, iPhone, Nokia S40 and Nokia S60. Recently, WhatsApp for Web was updated too. The update included some mobile-like features including more control over chats and group conversations.
Users will now see more options in the browser version too. Firstly, you can edit your profile photo and status message. Some UI tweaks have also been included in this update. The Settings option will now show overflow for chats, allowing users to delete and archive chats. In addition, users can also archive, mute and exit group chats.
iPhone users seem quite excited to try out the new client too!
