An smart phone application that creates a web version is something odd, but due to the massive use of it… everybody, even non frequent smart phone users want to have Whatsapp close to communicate with others, so thanks to that and globalization, the company invested in 2015 on an extension of the service through a web interface. Simply put, Whatsapp Web hit the digital screen of our laptops and PCs. This extension is unavoidably connected to the application on the smart phone, meaning that you need to have it installed and registered so you can apply it on the web client. It has some minor limitations for content sharing between users but it hits the basic goal of keeping you connected in the way you need and with whom you want.
All the system of the app works with accounts, the way to register is easy… just by entering your own phone number as the username and via automatic search engine compares yours to any already added on the database, if it’s new it will add it up, if you’re already registered then it will load all your previous info and have you back on the app with your previous contact list.
