WhatsApp now has a Chrome web client
About a month back, there were rumors that the Facebook-owned and very popular messenger service WhatsApp would soon be available on your computer via the web. Today, the folks at Whatsapp have pulled it off.
The new web client is an extension of the data from your phone, displayed in a Google Chrome page. It's simple to set up, and as long as your phone has a data connection you'll be able to send and receive messages via the WhatsApp service right from your PC.
Unfortunately, there's no web solution at this time for iOS users because of limitations of the platform.
If you're using WhatsApp, give this a spin and let us all know how it went in the comments!

With Bluestacks you can install and use Whatsapp on PC,but it would always lock you out of your phone and you would have to reinstall it and it was all messy. :/
This update is quite a relief. :)
Go power on a laptop with Google Chrome Installed on it. Have a smartphone on stand by with Whatsapp installed on it too. Follow the simple instructions to activate and use Whatsapp for Web. Do away with your phone and carry out live converstions on Whatsapp through your Laptop. No more typing on phone no nothing.
I tried reinstalling the app and still no option.
