Do you use WhatsApp on your phone? You may find that WhatsApp has better functionality in your life if you also add the web version to your favorite browser. WhatsApp desktop lets you work with the messaging app online on your laptop or desktop, so you don’t miss out on any new chat with friends or family.
WhatsApp Web is similar to the mobile app for your mobile device except for that it’s designed for Windows or Mac laptops and desktops. If you usually use Microsoft, for example, you can have it on your desktop and get all your chats there while you’re working or gaming. If you use Mac, you can add it to your favorites and keep WhatsApp open in your favorite web browser as you do other things around your house or browse the internet.
This makes it much easier to keep track of your WhatsApp messages and WhatsApp chats, since you can access them from anywhere with an internet connection.
What is WhatsApp Web and how does it work?
WhatsApp Web is an online platform that uses your WhatsApp account to log you in. With WhatsApp Web, you can send group chats on Firefox, check your messages online instead of on your mobile phone, and enjoy the freedom of using WhatsApp on any linked devices you use.
While your traditional app is going to be on your phone or iPad, for example, you can also link up your messaging service on your laptop and take it with you on the go. This is great if you want to chat while browsing social media or looking at a web page away from your mobile device.
The benefits of using WhatsApp Web
There are a few benefits of using WhatsApp Web. One of the main benefits is that you can see your chats on a larger screen. You can send gifs and animations right now through the web app, just like your would on the phone apps.
This version of WhatsApp can be logged into from any browser, too, so if you’re on a friend’s computer, are using a public computer, or have a computer at work, you can log in there instead of continuing to use your mobile devices. Since the two are linked, you won’t have to log out of your mobile devices, either.
Tips and tricks for getting the most out of WhatsApp Web
WhatsApp Web is simple to use, whether you’re on your Samsung Galaxy, logged in on your computer or are browsing in Safari. One of our suggestions for getting the most out of WhatsApp Web is automating your text messages with text-to-speech options.
Automate your text messages for convenience
One of the great ways to make WhatsApp work for you is by using voice messaging with the program. You can use the speech tool to speak directly into the program, allowing you to avoid typing in the things you want to say. Speech-to-text technology is excellent for helping you get down your ideas faster and keeping your conversations flowing in a new group or when you’re trying to stay up to date.
Another excellent option is to convert return messages to audio with text-to-speech technology. Instead of having to read what’s on the page, you can have Speechify read each of your messages to you automatically.
That means that you can step away from your computer and still hear the messages as they come through. WhatsApp users who want to multitask may enjoy hearing their messages as they come through, so they can focus on handling other tasks that require the use of their hands.
Let What’sApp read your messages aloud
Speechify does work with WhatsApp Messenger. You can simply turn on Speechify and have it read out all the messages that you get on the WhatsApp App (it will even try to read an emoji for you!)
Speechify is available as a browser extension, which means that you can have it ready and waiting when you enter WhatsApp on your preferred browser (We suggest the Chrome extension, though there are other options).
Once you open WhatsApp, Speechify can begin to read messages as they come through. This works similarly to reading any other kind of text, so if you’re trying to multitask, you can have Speechify read a document to you and then jump back to your text messages, too. Or, have Speechify keep you up on the conversation you’re having while you read through documents you’re reviewing or work you’re trying to get done.
Speechify makes it easy to collaborate as you read through documents or review a slideshow in a meeting. It reads out the information you need, so you don’t have to keep flipping back and forth between your WhatsApp app and the other documents on your screen.
Helpfully, you can also speed up the voice features on Speechify, so you can get through a conversation faster or change the accent of the information to make it more interesting to listen to. When used with WhatsApp, you won’t have to click a single button—just listen to the text as it’s delivered from the people in your WhatsApp group.
How do I connect to WhatsApp Web
Connecting to WhatsApp Web is quick and simple as long as you have an internet connection and a browser ready. All you have to do is connect WhatsApp with your web browser by going to http://web.whatsapp.com by using your Google Chrome browser (or another that you prefer). When you go to this address, you will see a QR code pop up. This can be scanned inside of WhatsApp, letting you get into WhatsApp on your web browser. Pairing your phone app and web client in this way keeps you updated no matter what device you’re using— your chats will migrate, so you have copies on your mobile devices as well as on your desktop.
How can I get WhatsApp QR code with phone number?
To get your WhatsApp QR code, you will need to open WhatsApp on your Android phone (or other device) using your phone number. Once inside the app, you should click on “More Options,” which is a symbol with three dots, to get to the drop-down settings menu.
