How to Use WhatsappWeb

Today we are going to talk to you about WhatsAppWeb, and we will explain 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 gives the sensation that WhatsApp does not want you to use in your browser more features than chat, leaving out of play some important that would have made it enter the league applications like Skype. These differences we will show you in a clear way in a comparative table.

What exactly is WhatsAppWeb

WhatsAppWeb is a method with which you can access the application from your browser . It is an official service of the app, so you are assured that all functions will be controlled by the same company responsible for the messaging application.

However we can not say that it is a web client, since the connection to WhatsApp is not made through the website, but this page connects to your mobile and through it accesses the service. In this way, all conversations and images you manage will be downloaded from the server and uploaded on the web directly from your mobile phone.

This means that if you do not have your cell phone nearby you will not be able to use WhatsAppWeb . In the same way, if the mobile is 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 nobody can enter your WhatsApp from your computer, but it turns the “client” into something a little more annoying to use.

How to configure WhatsAppWeb

Using WhatsAppWeb is relatively simple . The first thing you have to do is log onto web.whatsapp.com , which is the service homepage. When you do it you will get an access QR code that you will have to scan with the mobile version of the service.
To do so, open the WhatsApp application on your mobile. When you do, you will go directly to the Chats category , and up there on the right you will see a three-point icon with which to display the options menu. In it choose the option called WhatsApp Web .
When you do it you will get a sort of crosshair scanning through the back camera of your mobile. What you have to do is point to the QR code on the web with the camera , and even the web client will synchronize WhatsApp with the application you have on your mobile device.

From this moment you will see exactly the same conversations that you have in 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 synchronized.

08Here is a table in which we compare one by one which are the characteristics of WhatsApp that are not present in its version for browsers. As you see most of them are, although there are some fairly important missing and quite limited what could be a much more complete customer.

Even so, the main chat features are there, and you’ll have the entire WhatsApp emoji repertoire as well as your search engine so you can send animated GIFs to your contacts. You can also send voice messages in case you do not feel like writing.

The first differences begin to appear when sharing elements in the chats. If you click on the clip icon, you will only be presented with the most basic options , 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 options that are missing. The first is to be able to share contacts with a user, although you can access your contact list to start a new conversation. Neither is the recorder function , a kind of advanced voice messages in which you do not need to hold down the record button and you can create messages of up to fifteen minutes.

Two other functions that are not currently available in the web version are the calls. WhatsAppWeb does not allow you to make voice calls , nor can you use the video call feature . And it’s a shame, because having a computer with webcam the videoconferences could be very useful.

Finally, WhatsAppWeb is limited to conversations, so the entire system of states is left out . If you want to use WhatsApp as if it were Snapchat you will have to do it from the mobile, because to this day in the web client you do not have that option.

In any case, as you see in the table, the vast majority of options offered by WhatsApp also have them in your web client. It will be necessary to see if when they are adding new things they also take them directly to the web or it touches to add another Not in our table.
