All you iPhone users, rejoice! WhatsApp finally stepped up and brought its web client for us iOS users as well.
It didn’t even take too long. Eight months since the messaging service brought its web client for Android users (admittedly, more numerous), it has now launched WhatsApp Web for iOS. The service is compatible with Safari on any Mac.
In order to access it and enter the realm of web Whatsapp, all you have to do is access the website, and scan the QR code featuring on your desktop with your mobile application. Mind you, if you still can’t notice the WhatsApp Web being activated, that’s because the service is being rolled out in phases.
WhatsApp for iOS is becoming the treat it’s been for Android users for a while. Muting certain chats in case your friends become too chatty, mark conversations as it fits you best, backup the received videos or share your location with the exact coordinates.
WhatsApp Web was rolled out in January this year. Initially it supported just Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone. iOS was left on the margin as the Apple platform had its limitations.
Now, WhatsApp Web additionally supports NokiaS40, NokiaS60 and…iPhone. It’s really worth checking it out. Bring all your tasks and chores to the desktop and occasionally chat with your friends via WhatsApp Web without returning to the iPhone display over and over again. The Web application also includes some mobile-like features, including control over groups and chats so that the experience is so much more enjoyable.
While on WhatsApp Web you can edit the profile photo, your moody status message, archive or forever delete individual or group chats.
WhatsApp is quickly becoming the next rising star of messaging services. In April, the application’s user base counted 800 million active users on a monthly basis. Nonetheless, it looks like it has a long road to walk to catch up with Asian markets’ messaging giants, WeChat, Kakao Talk and Line.
