WhatsApp Web on your PC
One of WhatsApp Web’s main uses is to configure it on our computer to keep an eye on the mobile on our day.
Here we have two main ways to work with it. The first is to do it through the web version of WhatsApp, the page.
If you want to access it from your PC, steps to nofollow:
- Open WhatsApp Web on your computer
- Open WhatsApp on your phone
- Click on the menu and go to WhatsApp Web
- Scan the QR code you see on your computer screen
Ready. After scanning the code, a session will start, which allows you to use the service.
It is important to note that the connection to WhatsApp depends on your mobile, so if your phone runs out of network, the PC’s session will be closed.
You should also have in mind that if your phone has a low battery, the session can be disconnected, a point that should be taken into account.
If you want to use WhatsApp on PC without going through the browser, the application offers the same functions and a somewhat more successful user experience
The other way to use WhatsApp on your computer is through the official application for your corresponding platform.
In the case of macOS and Windows, we find WhatsApp clients, so we download them.
WhatsApp Web on a tablet
If we use a tablet, the process to log into WhatsApp web is similar to doing it on a PC.
The main limitation that we will find is that our browser probably configures the mobile version, so it is enough to change this.
- Access your usual browser
- Activate desktop mode
- Do the same process as above, scanning the QR code that WhatsApp throws on your tablet from your mobile
With this small change, we make the browser understand that we are using a computer to use it on the tablet as if it were a PC.
Keep in mind that this version is designed for PC and not for tablet, so it may not be perfect at the interface level concerning the computer.
WhatsApp Web on mobile
Using WhatsApp Web on mobile is also possible. However, a second terminal will be necessary to carry out the process since it is impossible to use the WhatsApp application.
If we try to scan the WhatsApp Web BIDI from our phone, we will return to the Android application.
Thus, the process to use WhatsApp Web from mobile is similar to the previous ones, although with the second phone.
- Open WhatsApp Web on your secondary mobile
- Activate browser desktop mode
- Scan the code from your primary phone (where you have the WhatsApp application installed)
Now you will have it fully functional on the second mobile and running via an app on the main one
As you have seen, this is a way to have two WhatsApp sessions open, with the same number and on two different mobiles. It does not specially optimize for mobile, but it is functional.
What you can and cannot do on WhatsApp Web?
It is quite complete in terms of functionalities. We can perform WhatsApp’s primary functions, such as sending and receiving messages, voice notes, consulting multimedia files, etc. However, there is a list to keep in mind with specific functions that we cannot perform.
- Add filters to photos
- Share location
- Voice calls
- Video calls
- Configure privacy section
- Set phone number change
- Set up automatic downloads
- Check data usage
- Upload stories
- Add contacts
- Create broadcasts
If you use WhatsApp Web on a mobile, the functions are the same.
You should keep in mind that the service is not optimized for this format to work somewhat slow and is slightly uncomfortable.
However, using Android permissions, we can send files, messages, voice notes, and more.
And also, Just as if we were to do it from the Web on PC or from the WhatsApp application for PC itself.
