If there was ever an application I wanted on my computer and not just on my mobile phone, it would be Whatsapp. Well, that is coming true as of today (I’ll come back to this), Whatsapp have launched a web app that runs inside your Google Chrome browser. It’s unfortunately not a native application, but I really do feel that it would be a wise move for them to venture down that road as I believe it will be well supported and appreciated.
But can you believe it, iPhone users have been completed left out! To access the desktop version, you have to this the website link and scan a QR code through Whatsapp. Apparently due to iOS limitations, iPhone users cannot participate yet – this information directly from Whatsapp.
It really is quite a bummer that us iPhone users cannot make use of this, I hope they’ll find a solution in the not too distant future because I could really do with being able to communicate via my machine rather than mobile as I do with iMessage.
Have you managed to try it out, word out says it’s very slick…
