Goodbye office productivity…
“Hey there! I am using WhatsApp.”
That’s the chirpy default status message they give you when you first get an account on the social network app WhatsApp (side note: I always imagine Dug, the dog from the 2009 Pixar film Up saying the greeting).
And you’re likely to see a whole lot more of these chirpy messages now that WhatsApp has launched a web version of its popular app – meaning you can message using WhatsApp from your computer.
WhatsApp explains: “WhatsApp Web is a computer based extension of the WhatsApp account on your phone. The messages you send and receive are fully synced between your phone and your computer, and you can see all messages on both devices.”
Sounds great, right?
Yeah, it doesn’t work with an iPhone though, thanks to “Apple platform limitations”.
