WhatsApp Web - wanna use it?

Part 1 - Using Google Chrome & Android

This WhatsApp Web review (as we go on) is from an end-user perspective. I am a late WhatsApp user - just had a samsung smartphone with android version 4.2.2. I had opted to use WhatsApp Web, due to my physical shortcomings. You may like WhatsApp Web, if you like to try - here’s how, Kindly note that WhatsApp Web is browser based.

1] Checking your Browser.

Firstly, you have to check that your browser is ‘compatible’ with WhatsApp Web. As for me, I have been religiously using Google Chrome, for Chrome the version needed is minimum ver36 or above.

2] to use WhatsApp Web - Follow this simple steps here:-
Open this site on your browser (by keying in the navigation bar)  
: -         
Open WhatsApp on you android (I am using Samsung)
In Chat tab, Go to WhatsApp Web menu and pressed it[the green buttons tell you where & how to get the relevant menu]

3] "Camera mode" will be activated automatically, scan the QR code on the screen with the phone, in the required location [square boundary on your phone], let the phone read the code, a scanning cursor is there as a guide. An Example of the QR code is given below. Please remember to “tick” where the green notification is, to avoid having to activate WhatsApp Web frequently.

Your phone need to be "on" and stay connected all the time, to the internet to use WhatsApp Web on PC.
