All you need to know about Whatsapl web…
Today we are going to talk to you in depth about WhatsApp Web, and we are going to do it by explaining what it is, how it is used and what are the
differences that separate it from the mobile client of the messaging application. Because even if they are
clients created for the same service, there are some important differences between them.
We could say, for example, that it seems that WhatsApp does not want you to use more functions in your browser than chat, leaving out some important functions that would have made it enter the league of applications such as Skype. We will show you these differences clearly please read full article.
What exactly is WhatsApp Web?
WhatsApp Web is a method with which you can access the application from your browser. It is an
official service of the app, so you have the assurance that all functions will be controlled by the same company responsible for the messaging application.
However, we cannot say that it is a web client, since the connection to WhatsApp is not made through
the web page, but this page connects to your mobile and through it accesses the service. In this way, all
conversations and images that you handle will be downloading from the server and uploading to the will be downloading from the server and uploading to the web directly from your mobile phone.
This means that if you don’t have your mobile nearby, you won’t be able to use WhatsApp Web. In the same
way, if the mobile is turned off or the application fails in it, you will see that an error appears on the web page.
This in theory gives you a layer of security since no one will be able to access your WhatsApp from your
computer, but it turns the “client” into something a little more annoying to use.Using WhatsApp Web is relatively simple. The first thing you have to do is enter web.whatsapp.com,which is the main page of the service. When you do,an access QR code will appear that you will have to scan with the mobile version of the service.
To do this, open the WhatsApp application on your mobile. When you do, you will go directly to the Chats category, and there at the top right you will see an icon with three dots with which to display the options
menu. In it choose the option called WhatsApp Web.When you do, you will get a kind of crosshair scanning
through the rear camera of your mobile. What you have to do is point the camera at the QR code on the
web, and the WhatsApp web client will automatically synchronize with the application you have on your
From this moment on you will see exactly the same conversations that you have on your mobile, and
you will be able to interact with your friends without any problem. Everything you write on the web you
will see later on your mobile, as both services will be
Lets see the diffrences between whatsapp and
Even so, the main chat functions are there, and you will have the entire repertoire of WhatsApp emojis as well
as its search engine so you can send animated GIFs to your contacts. You can also send voice messages in
case you don’t feel like writing.
The first differences begin to appear when it comes to sharing elements in chats. If you click on the clip
icon, only the most basic options will appear, such as sending photos, taking a photo with the webcam and
sending it, sharing a document or sharing one of the contacts. However, when sending photos, the option
to add filters is missing.
But there are two missing options. The first is to be able to share contacts with a user, although you will be able to access your contact list to start a new conversation. There is also the recorder function, a kind of advanced voice messages in which you do not need to press and hold the button to record and you can create messages of up to fifteen minutes.
Two other functions that are not currently available in the web version are calls. WhatsApp Web does not
allow you to make voice calls, and you cannot use the video calling feature either. And it’s a shame, because
having a computer with a webcam video conferencing could be very useful. What we will be able to do
is initiate video calls of up to 50 people through Facebook Rooms, curious considering that you cannot
make native calls.
WhatsApp Web on iPad: how to use it to have
WhatsApp on your tablet
WhatsApp Web is limited to conversations, so the entire status system is left out. If you want to use
WhatsApp as if it were Snapchat, you will have to do it from your mobile, because today in the web client
you do not have that option. What you do have is dark mode in case you want to configure it.
In any case, as you can see in the table, the vast majority of options that WhatsApp offers you are also available in its web client. It will be necessary to see if when they add new things they also take them directly
to the web or they have to add another No to our table.
