What is WhatsApp Web?

WhatsApp is a wildly popular free messaging service that boasts more than 2 billion users worldwide. And while many people use it via their phones, it can also be used on a desktop or laptop. If you know you’re going to be away from your phone for a bit and need to send a quick message, or if you just want to be able to keep in touch with your friends or family while you work, using WhatsApp Web on your computer can be a great option.

How to Use it?

Step 2: On your phone, go to WhatsApp and then:

For Android: Tap on the teal OK button that appears at the bottom of the screen. You may be asked to allow WhatsApp to have access to your phone’s camera: Tap on Continue — you may need to answer other permissions questions to grant access. Your phone’s screen should now look like a QR code scanner.

For iOS: Tap on the Scan QR code option, and the app will ask for permission to access your camera. Accept, and the screen should show a QR code scanner for the next step.

After this step, your app will open a screen with a camera window.
