How to setup and use WhatsApp Web on your computer with your iPhone

For me when it comes to chatting on WhatsApp I recommend using WhatsApp Web feature that the company started rolling out at the beginning of this year. However, at that time, it was available only for Android users.

WhatsApp had said that the web client wasn’t available for the iPhone due to “platform limitations.” iPhone users had to rely on jailbreaking to use the web client on the desktop with the iPhone.

The good news is that WhatsApp seems to have figured out a way to get WhatsApp web with the iPhone and earlier this week has started rolling it out. Find out how to setup and use WhatsApp web on your desktop using your iPhone.

So in order to use WhatsApp on your PC or Mac, you need to ensure that these things are made:
  • Your iPhone must be connected to the Internet and the WhatsApp app should be installed on it for WhatsApp Web to work.
  • You need the latest version of WhatsApp.
  • You need to use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari on your computer.
How to set up and use WhatsApp web on your desktop using your iPhone

STEP 1: Visit on your computer. You will see a QR code. 

STEP 2: Now open WhatsApp on your iPhone and go to Settings---> tap on WhatsApp Web. [Note: If you don’t see the WhatsApp Web option, please ensure you have the latest version of WhatsApp on your iPhone. Since WhatsApp is rolling out the feature in a staggered manner, the WhatsApp web option may not be available to everyone at the time of writing this post.]

STEP 3: Now scan the QR code on your computer screen with your iPhone camera. 
That's it ! Now you are connected to WhatsApp Web and you can chat with your friends on your computer. 

Log out from your computers After you’ve set up WhatsApp Web on your desktop, 

You will see it in the list of logged in computers, when you navigate to Settings > WhatsApp Web in the WhatsApp app on your iPhone. If you want to stop using WhatsApp Web client on your computer, then tap on Log out from all computers, followed by Log out. It is great to finally use WhatsApp on the desktop though I am not a big fan of web clients. I think a native client would offer a much better experience. Please note that web client connects to your iPhone to sync messages, so you connect to a Wi-Fi network on your iP
