From the last two years WhatsApp has grown this much that it almost removed the trend of simple textime. With over 700 million monthly active users WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging service available for all platforms except desktop PCs, but now with the latest announcement in WhatsApp blog users can also be able to use WhatsApp from their computers.



WhatsApp has announced the launch of a new service called WhatsApp Web.

“Today, for the first time, millions of you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on your Web browser,” the messaging app said via a 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.”
