WhatsApp launches its web client for iOS users

Facebook-owned popular instant messaging service WhatsApp has revealed that it is launching its Web client for iOS users. The announcement implies that the users of Apple iPhones can now use the WhatsApp service on the Web.

The launch of the WhatsApp web client for iOS users comes nearly eight months after WhatsApp released its web client for Android users. As a result of the availability of the WhatsApp web client for iOS platform, WhatsApp for Web is now available for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Nokia S40 and Nokia S60.

With the release of the WhatsApp web client for iOS, iPhone users can now link the instant messaging app with their computers. For using the WhatsApp service on the Web, iPhone users simply have to open their app, click on 'Settings,' and then select 'Whatsapp Web'. Thereafter, they have to go to web. whatsapp. com in Google Chrome, and scan the QR code via the mobile app, and start chatting with their friends from the computer.

However, this feature is being rolled out to iOS users in phases, and will not be available for all users immediately.

About the launch of WhatsApp for Web for iOS users, WhatsApp said in a recent blog post: "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."
