You don’t have to keep your phone close to use Whatsapp Web / Desktop on laptop with these two solutions
WhatsApp has become one of the most used applications in the world. At the beginning of the year they had projected that 2.7 billion users will join WhatsApp in 2020. In India, it is still one of the most popular and used messaging applications, followed by WeChat, along with its WhatsApp Web / Desktop solutions for computers.
One of the main reasons why WhatsApp became so popular is that it is so easy to use and simple. Many features were added to WhatsApp over the years, and in the current version, users can make voice or video calls, share documents up to 100MB, share locations, and even share voice or audio notes.
While it was initially released for use on smartphones, manufacturers quickly realized that to compete with Telegram it would have to work on computers as well. Therefore, the creators created a web version and a desktop application.
WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop

However, to make phone calls or video calls, users will need to continue using the smartphone, at least until the tools are integrated into the stable version.
