WhatsApp Messenger Is Now On Desktop!

If you are reading this, you most probably are using WhatsApp for your day-to-day conversations with friends and family. Are you tired of typing everything on your phone?
Well, WhatsApp is now accessible via desktop!

For some weird reasons, it only works with the Chrome browser for now. Of yeah, it’s a webapp and not a standalone desktop app but that doesn’t really matter to many.

To log in, you just have to take a picture of a QR code through WhatsApp on your phone.
This authentication is needed because WhatsApp uses your phone number and SMS verifications rather than usernames/passwords.

Are you on iOS? Here’s a bad news. This new desktop WhatsApp currently only works on Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry so if you are on the iPhone, you still need to use your iPhone to chat via WhatsApp. 🙁
