Advantages of using whatsapp on Computer
1. File Sharing
You can use WhatsApp Web to share files directly from mobile to laptop or laptop to mobile. I personally use this feature to share files between my laptop and phone device.
The trick I use is my phone has a feature called dual apps. I can use whatsapp from two different Numbers using the same phone.
Whenever I need to send files from my phone to my notebook, I share the file from my one WhatsApp Profile to another WhatsApp Profile.
Then I open WhatsApp on my notebook device to download the files.
This way I use WhatsApp as a file sharing application.
However If Your Phone does not have dual apps feature, then you would fail to do the same.
2. Send Files to Friends And Family
You can share files with your close friends and family members so that they can directly download it to their notebook device.
Though you can also email the files
3. Very Handy in an Internet Cafe
If you are like me who uses an Internet Cafe to print his documents. Then this feature will come very handy.
You can send and download the files directly from a computer you don’t own without knowing their email
You also do not need a physical cable or any other software to share files especially when the laptop or pc is not your own.
Things to Note (Caution)
When using WhatsApp on someone else’s laptop or pc.
Make sure to always log out from WhatsWeb using your phone.
Go to WhatsApp Web Feature on your phone and log out from all devices.
