    • WhatsApp can be accessed on a laptop or desktop using WhatsApp web on a browser.

WhatsApp is mainly available for mobile platforms, but it can also be easily accessible on a computer using Whatsapp web without a QR code. Here’s an article detailing how to use Whatsapp without Whatsapp Web. While this might look like a perfect solution to many, there are a few constraints while using the WhatsApp Web platform. 

    This Whatsapp web without QR code application requires you to have and maintain an active internet connection on both the mobile and the computer. This is because all the messages we send on the Whatsapp web without a QR code portal are routed. It happens through your mobile phone before it goes to the end receiver. This can potentially delay the delivery of the messages to a small extent. It also means that smartphones need an active internet connection for the Whatsapp web without a QR code application to work.
