Recently WhatsApp announced that is launching a web browser-based version called WhatsApp web, allow users able to chat on browsers instead of just their mobile apps. However WhatsApp Web on iPhone didn’t work and only compatible with WhatsApp user accounts from Android and Windows phone.
iPhone users can’t access WhatsApp web because “Apple has no background multi-tasking and no proper push technology. So it is a bad user experience on iOS.”. The company said that an iOS compatible version is coming, but “the timeframe is unclear.”
