Great news fellow iPhone owners! If you’re anything like me, you get a little frustrated when you get a message on WhatsApp at work because you can’t just reply from your computer right in front of you. This is one of the main reasons why I love iMessage so much.

Well now you can end your Android counterpart’s bragging about being able to use WhatsApp on the web. An app update is rolling out around the world as we speak. With this update comes the ability to use WhatsApp for the web.

Hopefully WhatsMac will also be supported. (It should be as it is just a web wrapper.)

This should make WhatsApp a little less painful to use for me. Ideally I’d like to see Apple offer iMessage and FaceTime on other platforms, but until then (never) this will have to make do.

I’ll update this when I get the update and get some testing done.

Update

Works as advertised. Head to web.whatsapp.com and scan the QR code from WhatsApp on your iPhone. You’ll find the QR Code reader under Settings > WhatsApp Web in the App. Goodbye productivity.
