WhatsApp web and Desktop app

There is not much difference between the two versions (WhatsApp web and Desktop app) as their functionality is almost the same. However, the Desktop version comes with two new features. The WhatsApp Web version is much more like the mobile version.

WhatsApp web allows you to use WhatsApp in an effortless manner because it provides you with the easy shortcuts, emojis, and can also help you send audio files during the chat. The only thing is that you need to do is to sign-in on the WhatsApp Web via QR code. On the WhatsApp Web, once you establish a connection with your phone, you will see all of your WhatsApp messages on the web instantly.

The benefit of the Desktop version is that you can get the message notifications instantly on your PC. The Desktop version is also very fast. The main thing is that these both versions are almost the same in terms of functionality.

Many people find WhatsApp web as a pretty useful option. User may find it easier to type on the keyboard of the computer than on the phone. This can be very handy especially for those who spend a lot of time working on their computers. It eliminates the need to take the phone every single time when a WhatsApp message arrives. Instead of using the phone, just hover the mouse to WhatsApp web and you are ready to read and reply on the messages. The plus point is the fact that WhatsApp web works flawlessly, and if you haven’t tried it yet, we recommend you to do so.

WhatsApp Web Method

To use WhatsApp web, you need to have the WhatsApp installed on your mobile phones as well. If you have a fully functional and set WhatsApp on your phone then you can follow the below-mentioned steps to use WhatsApp Web:

  • First of all, go on to web.whatsapp.com

  • Now you need to get your phone and open it on your phone.
  • After that, tap three dots in the upper-right corner of the screen

  • Tap Allow
  • Hold your phone in such a way that it can scan the QR code correctly.

If the QR code is scanned correctly by your phone, you will see all of your WhatsApp messages and chat history on the WhatsApp web client.
