WhatsApp Web now works on Mozilla Firefox and Opera browsers


WhatsApp last month launched WhatsApp Web, but the feature was limited to only Chrome browser. Now however the company has expanded its compatibility to Firefox and Opera browsers.

While the compatibility has been expanded to include Firefox and Opera, the functionality remains the same. So in essence you will need to launch the web client on your browser and scan a QR code with your phone to log in.

The interface is simple, with all your contacts lined up on the left, and your chat window takes up the rest of the screen. It retains all the emoticons, and you can send videos and photos seamlessly. It is important to note that WhatsApp Web only works in sync with your phone, so you have to ensure that your phone has data or Wi-Fi connectivity.
