Messaging platform WhatsApp has offered the opportunity to users to send messages from their desktop web browsers.


The company says messages will still live on users’ phones.

The desktop messaging option is also not available to users who access the app on Apple devices.
“We will not be able to provide [the] web client… due to Apple platform limitations,” it wrote.
Last February, Facebook paid nearly $19bn (?12.6bn) to buy WhatsApp, which recently reported that it had around 700m mobile users. The acquisition was completed in October.

WhatsApp is one of the world’s largest messaging platforms, but concerns have been raised about how it plans to increase its user base in addition to how it will make money.
