A cross platform instant messenger app, WhatsApp has announced that, this app can now support two more browsers, which includes Firefox and Opera browsers, apart from Google Chrome. Previously, WhatsApp was by Chrome browser. Similar to the chrome users will need to scan QR code with your phone to start the WhatsApp web client on Opera and Firefox browsers.
While the app is currently available on many platforms like Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry, the desktop service is available only for Android, Window Phone, BBM users alone.
On the other news, the calling feature was activated for some selected users who could pass on the invitation to their friends by making a WhatsApp call. But this invite-feature has since been disabled by WhatsApp recently.
Moreover, WhatsApp version 2.11.528 from the Play Store or 2.11.531 from WhatsApp website, saw the call icon on their app and could make a call to their friends and pass on the invite. The invite in the sense was getting a call from someone who already had the calling feature activated.
Users who have activated this feature, can still make calls to their friends. But one cannot activate the option for others. It seems like WhatsApp has disabled the invitation feature and was simply testing its servers for the call functionality.
Indeed, WhatsApp is the mostly used popular messaging app with more than 600 million active users, with India alone boasting a user base of more than 70 million. According to the company report, this app has surpassed 700 million users, during Jan 2015.
