There’s no tablet app for WhatsApp, and sometimes computers are easier to use, so WhatsApp web is useful for a range of functions.
Here’s how to set up WhatsApp web on a computer or tablet.
It couldn’t be easier to access WhatsApp web – all you need is your computer, and your phone with WhatsApp logged in.
You’re faced with a list of desktop and tablet devices you’re logged in to, so if your computer’s already linked to WhatsApp, it’ll be on this list (although you won’t have seen the QR code on the WhatsApp web website in that case).
Now line the box in the camera up with the QR code on your computer screen – if this works, the camera on your phone will close, and WhatsApp web will open on your computer.
If it doesn’t work, try refreshing your computer page to try again.
Setting up WhatsApp web on your browser on a tablet is a little tricky, because the tablet browsers don’t appear to let you use WhatsApp web – instead they prompt you to download the app.
The way to get around this is to request the desktop site on your tablet, which will show you the page as it’d appear on a computer instead of what you’re seeing on a tablet.
To do this on Safari on iPad, press and hold the page refresh button to the right of the URL bar at the top.
After a few moments a prompt will appear to request desktop site – press this, and you should see the same page you’d get on a computer.
Delete a chat. If you don’t want to save your current conversation, you can delete it. While still on the chat window, click the button with three vertical dots on the header bar. Then click “Delete chat” from here. This step is optional, and you don’t have to do this if you want to keep your conversation as part of your chat history.
