Globally favourite and most active mobile social App goes online. Whatsapp users all over the world can now gain access to their Whatsapp application through their browser, on their desktop. The only catch is that it is supported only through the Google Chrome browser and Android as of now. Whatsapp announced on 21 January 2015, that it has finally instigated the option of using its messaging service on your desktop. Its web client is simply an extension of your phone. The web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device -- this means all of your messages still live on your phone. WhatsApp has become competently popular all around the world, and the fact that we have been relying very much on the app as much as much as our daily need, we always despised the fact that it can be only accessed on your phone. It is a technological blessing for everyone who find shuffling between mobile and PC at work is a pain to be able to use WhatsApp.
