WhatsApp has finally launched a web version of their mobile client. The new WhatsApp Web app only works with Chrome for now and is compatible with Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone — apparently, no love for iOS initially. We love the new WhatsApp Web as it uses Google’s Material Design guidelines and beautifully implemented them for the web. The desktop version is not entirely a complete web app, in a way, that you still need to have WhatsApp on your phone and then link your phone with Chrome.
This is all very easy to set up. How? We have shown the process in detail below after the jump with screenshots. If you’re someone who uses WhatsApp a lot for sending messages from your phone, this is one thing you will really love. Let’s move on to setting up WhatsApp for Android for WhatsApp Web.
