How to Easy Use WhatsApp App on PC/Laptop Without a Phone – For WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop users on a PC or laptop, it is common knowledge that to send chats on these devices, you must ensure that the smartphone is also on and connected to the internet.

However, WhatsApp recently introduced an update that allows users to use WhatsApp on the desktop without connecting to a smartphone.

Even with this feature, users can connect WhatsApp on up to 4 different devices, both Web, Desktop, and Portal versions on one WhatsApp account. Moreover, all accounts can still be activated independently, even if the primary smartphone is not connected.

Although it is still a beta version, this feature can already be enjoyed by almost all WhatsApp users. For those of you who don’t know-how here, Allingadget shares the WhatsApp method, on a PC/laptop, without having to be connected to a smartphone.

Use WhatsApp on a PC/Laptop without a Phone

The first preparation to use WhatsApp on a PC/laptop still requires you to use a smartphone. Relax. This step is only done once for so long.

The first step you need to link the devices once as part of the setup or integration. The setup process requires you to open WhatsApp Web and scan a QR code, but once you run it, you can switch to the full desktop app.

Even so, because it is still a beta version, some limitations must be considered, including:

  • If your primary device is iPhone, you can’t delete messages on additional devices
  • Call or send messages to other people using older versions of WhatsApp
  • Multi-device does not support use on tablets
  • View live location from enhancements
  • Create and view broadcast lists on enhancements
  • Send messages with link preview from WhatsApp Web

Easy isn’t it? Well, now, if your smartphone dies or loses connection, you can still send and receive messages on the desktop version of WhatsApp.

For the record, all conversations on WhatsApp desktop will still be protected by end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp also reminded us that it does not mean that accounts outside the primary device will not be disconnected, even though they can be activated independently.

“If you don’t use your smartphone for more than 14 days, the device connected to your account will be disconnected,” the company wrote as quoted from its official website.
