Currently, if we want to use WhatsApp on our computer, we have the possibility to use your web version, which we access from the browser on the computer. We just have to scan a QR code on the computer screen and it will be synchronized with our account, so that we can use it on the computer, although the phone has to be connected and working at all times.
Although from the company they could be working on changes in this regard. Since they are planning to launch a WhatsApp computer app, that will not depend on the smartphone As is the case so far. A change that would be of great importance to many users.
Could be related to WhatsApp plans to allow users to use the same account on different devices. In this previous news nothing was mentioned about computers, but it would not be far-fetched to think that such account could also be accessed on a computer. It would be very comfortable for users in the application.
