While WhatsApp is an extremely popular messaging app, it doesn’t mean it will be two or three months from now.
The reality is that WhatsApp can be replaced by something even better. And, many companies are working toward that goal – the goal to dethrone WhatsApp from its number one spot. What kinds of apps are currently looking to overtake WhatsApp?
It looks like WhatsApp was dethroned in terms of the amount of users – with more than 650 million users. It’s an extremely popular app in China and comes with a host of functions such as video calling and calls to both cell phone and landline numbers.
Another very popular messaging option is Facebook Messenger – perhaps because it’s tied to a person’s Facebook account. Many people have Facebook, which means people can communicate with one another fairly easily.
Most people don’t think of Instagram has a messaging app, but it’s a worthwhile alternative. There are a plethora of hidden benefits to it such as the ability to “unsend messages.” This ability would save users from major embarrassment if a message was sent to the wrong user.
Blackberry phones were all the rage for texting, but they’re not near as popular as they once were. However, you can still use the Blackberry Messenger app for your Android or iOS device.
Using WhatsApp On Your Computer Rather Than Your Phone
WhatsApp is one of the more popular messaging apps for a multitude of reasons. One of which is the ability its millions of users have to connect with their family and friends.
Of course, phone typing can be a bit tedious for some people. It’s why WhatsApp developers came up with the WhatsApp Web for people who’d rather use their computers to stay in touch with loved ones.
How To Use WhatsApp Web
If you’d like to use your computer to chat via WhatsApp, you’ll need to open the WhatsApp Web link www.WhatsApp.com. The great thing is that the Web application can be used for both Android and iPhone and with any computer you own.
On the homepage, a QR screen will appear. You’ll also see a message that says, “Use WhatsApp on your phone to scan the code. You’ll need to use your phone and open the WhatsApp application. Open Settings and hit the WhatsApp Web. Use the phone to scan the QR code on the computer. All you need to do is point the camera at the screen and take the picture.
Once the QR code has been scanned, the application should open up on the computer with all conversations for you to view.
