Finally a way to use WhatsApp on PC via Web Browser!
Taken from my post here
We use WhatsApp. A lot. Whether it is to communicate with friend, or family, or our Unleash Group. Its great for keeping in touch with people both individually and as a group. The best part of it is: virtually everyone you know has it on their phones, that they carry around with them at all times. However, a lot of people sit on their primary computing device all day, and find picking up their phone just to see and respond to WhatsApp messages quite an irritation, Yours Truly included. There exist a lot of apps to let you send Text Messages from your PC, like Mighty Text. After WhatsApp coming around, a lot of peopleís text messaging usage is almost zero.
Enter WhatsRemote. It pushes WhatsApp messages you receive on your phone to your Web Browser.
You Sign into your Google Account both on the App and in your web browser. The app mentions Firefox and Chrome support. We managed to get it to work on Safari too, but it wasnít as reliable.
WhatsRemote isnít free. Once you install it on your phone and sign in, you have a 10 Hour Trial Period [the developer informed me that he has just increased it from 10 Hours to a more reasonable 3 Days. Will take 48 Hours for the change to show in the App Description on the Play Store, but will be in effect immediately]. Post this you will have to purchase a subscription. It costs Rs. 87 or $1.50 for a 6 Month subscription to the service.
Due to the subscription model, the app has received some flak in the form of Negative Play Store Reviews. People think its free and then realise they have to pay, and arenít too happy. Oh well.
What Works Fine
Regular One-One Messaging
Message Pop-Up Notification in Chrome
What Currently Doesnít Work
Attaching Media from Browser
Viewing Video/Audio/Voice Notes/Location
Viewing and transmitting Last See At Status
Compose Message to someone not in your recent conversations on phone
While its in no way a complete product as of now, the team behind it is incredibly receptive to Feedback and seem to be keen to tweak it to perfection, with a check list of to-be-implemented features.
You can check it out on the Play Store here
What do you think? Does this fill in a use-case for you?
