Typing long messages or holding multiple WhatsApp conversations on your smartphone is possible, but there are times when typing away on a full keyboard and viewing messages on a full-size computer screen would be better. WhatsApp offers two different solutions for using its service on a computer: WhatsApp Web or desktop apps for Windows and OS X. Requirements According to WhatsApp's support page, you can use either WhatsApp product (Web or desktop app) if your phone is one of the following: • Android • iOS 8.1 and above • Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1 • Nokia S60, Nokia S40 EVO • BlackBerry and BlackBerry 10 When you're using WhatsApp on a computer, your phone will still need to have a data or Wi-Fi connection. That's because the platform essentially mirrors the app on your smartphone. So if for example, you're traveling in another country and your phone doesn't have a connection, you won't be able to use WhatsApp on another device. • Using Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari or Edge, head to. • You'll see a QR code for you to scan with the WhatsApp phone app.

Just below the code, you'll see instructions to help you find that scanning option on the app. For example, in the iOS app, tap Settings, then WhatsApp Web. • After you scan the code, you'll be able to see your WhatsApp messages on your phone and in the browser. You won't need a Wi-Fi connection for your phone, but WhatsApp recommends connecting over Wi-Fi to avoid using too much mobile data.
The WhatsApp Web layout mirrors the mobile experience, just on a larger scale. You can still send emojis, GIFs, photos and voice notes, view your contact list and receive notifications on the computer. How to set up WhatsApp's desktop app Setting up the desktop app is similar to setting up WhatsApp Web, but with one exception -- you need to download and install the application first.
