WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messenger available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your 3G or WiFi (when available) to message with friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages.
breaking news, WhatsApp is now working on computer, WhatsApp users on Android phones can now write and read chats via their Web browsers with a few restrictions. The Facebook owned service with some 700 million monthly active users said in a blog post that people can now link their mobile phones with a WhatsApp Web client, allowing them to write and read messages via their computers.
The popular mobile messaging application WhatsApp, acquired by Facebook last year for nearly USD 22 billion, has unveiled a new service for sending messages from a Web browser. WhatsApp, which claims some 500 million users, said its Web service will be a “mirror” and would require an Internetconnected phone to work. “Our 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 said in a blog post.
The new messaging service currently only works with Google’s Chrome browser and will not be available to iPhone users “due to Apple platform limitations,”according to WhatsApp. Facebook in October completed its buy of WhatsApp in a stock-and-cash deal. The acquisition highlighted the stunning growth of mobile messaging but also prompted analyst questions on the price paid by Facebook and future plans for the service.
