Using WhatsApp on your Computer

For me, scrolling too much and typing long text on mobiles is very irritating but I love using WhatsApp for chatting and sharing whatever junk I have to share.

I was searching for ways as to how I can use WhatsApp on my computer.  I found a Chrome application ‘WhatsChrome’ that replicates my WhatsApp ID to my computer.

To install it on your computer just open https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps and type  ‘WhatsChrome’ or ‘WhatsApp‘ in search box and hit Enter.

It will display some related apps.  I have tested ‘WhatsChrome’ and ‘WhatsApp Web Wrapper’.  Both are almost same apps developed by different developers.

To use them, you just need to click on ‘+ Add to Chrome’ button and rest everything will be done automatically.  On every run after installation, it asks to scan the barcode displayed on your computer screen.  For scanning this bardcode, open WhatsApp on your phone.  Go to Menu -> WhatsApp Web option.  It will open phone’s camera.  Place the phone in front of the screen to capture the barcode.

Scanning is quick.  Once scanned, it will open WhatsApp on your computer screen.  You may use this app to send and read the messages.

It will keep your phone in sync and for that, phone must be connected to internet.  If you are not connected to internet, you may not use WhatsApp on your computer.

Chrome All in One Desktop

LG Chromebase 22CV241 - B All-in-One (4th Gen CDC / 2GB/ Google Chrome)

LG Chromebase 22CV241 – B All-in-One (4th Gen CDC / 2GB/ Google Chrome)

Recently I bought LG Chromebase 22CV241 for testing whether it may be useful for a normal user who usually works on browser, does a little word processing and uses spreadsheet a little.

It has been tested by several users and the feedback is very good.  Performance is excellent, big 21.5 inch Full HD display, built-in camera and mic etc attracts every user.  I personally feel that it can replace Windows PCs easily.  Some of the features are:

  • BRILLIANT 21.5(54.61 CMS) 1920X1080 FULL HD IPS DISPLAY
  • ADVANCED TECH-STYLING OF DESIGN AWARD WINNER
  • POWERED BY CHROME OS (100 GB of Google Drive space for 2 Years)
  • BOOTS IN SECONDS
  • THOUSANDS OF APPS
  • AUTOMATICALLY UPDATES ITSELF
  • VIRUS PROTECTION BUILT-IN
  • FLICKER SAFE
  • 16 GB SSD STORAGE
  • BUILT-IN MIC, SPEAKERS AND CAMERA
  • CONNECTIVITY FOR USB, HDMI, RJ45, HEADPHONES AND MIC
  • WEIGHS ONLY 3.5 KGS

In my opinion it the best All In One Desktop for home users.
