    In fact Google Chrome was the only desktop browser to be supported by the service at launch. The company later updated support for some other popular desktop browsers like Mozilla and Opera. Even support was extended to Symbian users of Nokia S40 and S60 series. Unfortunately though Safari had eluded the list of supported browsers for the application.

    Nevertheless with the induction of support for iPhone, users can now use the application on Safari on their MacBook. Some features like photo capture and voice message recording are still absent though. Expect the company to add support for these features once the service becomes adapted by masses in iOS. The service though comes with some added features like ability to manage chats and profile photo via update.

    For using the service, users need to simply head over to the WhatsApp Web website from their MacBook's and scan a QR on the laptop screen via the WhatsApp application on their iPhones. Do make sure to update the app to latest version on your iPhone though, before performing the task.
