First of all, you'll need to check the necessary requirements you need to use WhatsApp on your PC:

  • Google Chrome on your computer (it's not available at the moment for other browsers)

To do so, you'll place your mobile camera in front of the computer screen, as if you were going to take the photo, and it will read the code and automatically open a new window on your PC's web page.
