WhatsApp Web: how to use, QR code scanner and more tricks

WhatsApp Web is a WhatsApp platform that will allow you to send and receive messages from your PC or from a tablet. WhatsApp Web is nothing more than a client made for the PC browser that works through a link with the WhatsApp of your mobile. This means that it is not another account, but the same account but open in the web browser. By accessing WhatsApp Web you will simply be accessing the same account but on two devices.

WhatsApp Web has almost all the functionalities that the mobile application has, being practically a mirror of what you receive and send on your cell phone but with the convenience of being able to write messages from your PC or send files saved on your computer’s hard drive. This means that all the messages you send and receive through WhatsApp Web will also be reflected on your cell phone or vice versa.

This modality of WhatsApp can be used through the applications installed on Android or iOS, through which you can access a QR code scanner that will analyze the QR code that is provided inweb.whatsapp.com. Thanks to this WhatsApp system you will be sure that you are the one who has control of the mobile in question.
