WhatsApp web client now supports Firefox and Opera
Last month, WhatsApp launched a desktop version of its popular messaging service, which arrived as a web app for Google’s Chrome web browser. The company has now updated its web client to work with Firefox and Opera browsers as well.
As before, the desktop client mirrors your conversations and messages from your mobile device and still requires you to scan a QR code on your computer via your phone in order to get started.
To use the service, simply head on over to web.whatsapp.com through Chrome, Firefox or Opera and scan the barcode. If you aren’t using the online messaging service yet, you can try out the app for free from the Google Play Store.
