WhatsApp Web Begins Rolling Out on iPhone

WhatsApp has updated its website with instructions on how to access WhatsApp Web on iPhone, and the new settings appear to be rolling out for some users now. To access WhatsApp Web from iPhone, open the app, tap on Settings and a WhatsApp Web menu option should appear once live.

People need to switch to Telegram. WhatsApp is clunky garbage. Telegram has the most wonderful chatting experience I've ever seen in my entire life and I've been in this business for a long time.

REAL clients for all your platforms. None of this proxying through your phone bulls**t. And the group chats work really well.

Dump WhatsApp and tell your friends to do it too. Also, Facebook owns WhatsApp, it's only a matter of time before they kill it anyway and roll it into FB Messenger.

Tried Telegram, it is better but deleted since no one I know uses it.

That would be nice. Maybe we will see one with WatchOS2, since it'll probably need to be a native app. Though with the fact it took them a year to do the voice calling, after they announced it, I don't hold my breath....


They are the slowest devs ever - whatever is released in September in the newest iOS you're lucky to see implemented in Whatsapp by Dec/Jan.

Wrong. Telegram is even clunkier... For me iMessage comes first, then WhatsApp for my folks utilising other phones... It all comes down to practicality.

this thread proves people are likely being paid to promote Telegram. no sane person shows hate for a product and love for another in the same post. Also if you notice it comes down to since facebook bought them. did facebook eat your lunch?

I absolutely could not agree with you more.

My friends, family and I all moved to Telegram when Whatsapp were bought out by Facebook. I have one single account across all my devices including desktops, ipad, android tablets, surface etc.. - It's how it should be. They've even covered the iwatch.

So many people on here complain about Google trawling their data, well, what do they think Facebook is going to do in order to recoup their mahooosive purchase cost of Whatsapp? I read somewhere as well that it is in Whatsapp T&C's that they can change their T&C's whenever they like and don't have to notify users.

Try Telegram and you'll not look back.


Apple need to release it for Android for it to be my exclusive chat client.

Very, very, very good luck with that one!

I tried Telegram and installed it on my girlfriend's iPhone too. I really liked it but after some time, my girlfriend started receiving messages from some indian freak. So we both deleted the app and came back to whatsapp.
