After a wait of over 8 months, iPhone users can finally get to use WhatsApp for Web. WhatsApp has added iOS to the platforms supported by its web app and iPhone users can now sync their accounts and chats to WhatsApp Web. Along with iOS, WhatsApp for Web will now work with Safari on the Mac.
To make the most of it, iOS users will have to go the WhatsApp Web website and scan the QR code seen on the desktop via the mobile app. It is also reported that few of the users are yet to get access as the feature has not been rolled out to all the users and will be available in phases only.
With a latest addition to its list of new features, iPhone users such as the option to mute an individual chat, mark a conversation as read or unread, backup videos and location sharing. Not just that, there are features that allow auto loading of older messages along with better support for VoiceOver. It also includes features that gives more control over chats and group conversations.
The browser version too provides more options, where a user can edit profile photos and status message; settings will show overflow for chats, where user can choose to delete and archive chats. In addition, users can also archive, mute and exit group chats.
