What do I need to do to use WhatsApp Web
In order to use WhatsApp Web, both your computer and your smartphone must be connected to the Internet. If your mobile device does not have access to Wi-Fi or data, then WhatsApp Web will not work. Also, it is not mandatory that your smartphone and PC are connected to the same internet network.
How to access WhatsApp Web
Accessing WhatsApp Web from your computer is really very simple. The first step is to open your favorite browser and then launch web.whatsapp.com. At this point your smartphone comes into action: you have to open WhatsApp, press the icon with three dots at the top right and then select WhatsApp Web. If you use an iPhone, instead of pressing the icon with three dots, you'll have to enter Settings and press WhatsApp Web. At this point you will be able to frame the QR Code of WhatsApp Web with your smartphone camera, which will allow you to access the instant messaging service on your computer with your account.

Come utilizzare WhatsApp Web dal tablet
Il rapporto tablet-WhatsApp è sempre stato molto burrascoso. Se il device mobile non ha il supporto per la scheda SIM, utilizzare WhatsApp è veramente molto difficile. WhatsApp Web permette di risolvere in parte i problemi. Si dovrà lanciare sul tablet l’applicazione browser che si utilizza solitamente e attivare la modalità desktop. A questo punto si dovrà entrare sul sito web.whatsapp.com ed eseguire la stessa procedura vista in precedenza: scannerizzare il codice QR e collegare WhatsApp to Web con l’account dello smartphone. Tutto molto semplice e veloce.
