It’s been a year now since we are dying to use WhatsApp on our computers. But the product was strictly available only for mobiles. But yesterday something new happened. After buying it the new WhatsApp owner Mark Zukerberg made some revolutionary changes in WhatsApp. Previously it was Blue Ticks. But now it is even more better. Now you can use WhatsApp straight to your computer Browser like Chrome.

What is WhatsApp?

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other!

Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

    • Hi Subhajit,
      Yes you can’t use WhatsApp in PC without your Mobile and that too with active internet connection. Yeah this seems to be ridiculous but I hope they will upgrade it 🙂
