WhatsApp is the most-used multiplatform IM app in the world. Now, after a long wait, its developers are finally offering users the option to chat with their contacts via their web browser on any desktop PC.

The web version of WhatsApp offers most of the same features as the mobile app, with the added benefit of synching all your contacts, groups, and conversations to all your devices. It also lets you receive notifications directly to your desktop.

To use it, the only requirement is to download and update to the latest version of your browser (version 2.11.498 or higher for Android). When you open the app and drop down the upper right-hand menu you’ll see a new option called WhatsApp Web. There you’ll need to use your smartphone camera to capture the QR code that will appear when you access the web version from this link to the official webpage. That done, your contacts and chat tabs should automatically appear in the window.

The only setting that’s specific to this version is the option to enable or disable desktop notifications (both the pop-up windows and the sounds), or silence them for a set time period.
