Good news for all WhatsApp fans! The popular messenger app is now available to use via desktop for the first time in its existence.
The service which debuted in 2009, has always been a mobile-only app but now can be accessed via the Google Chrome browser.
To connect your WhatsApp service to your desktop, you need to visit the WhatsApp website and scan a QR code using the most recent version of the app on your smartphone. Messages will then sync between the mobile and desktop device.
One downside to this news is that iPhone users have been excluded from this extension.
“Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations.” (WhatsApp)
