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.

Introducing: https://web.whatsapp.com/


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…
