WhatsApp now able to be used on your Desktop…

Rumors had been there since quite some time already that the Facebook-owned and very popular messenger service WhatsApp would soon be available on your computer via internet. But only today it was officially confirmed and launched.

WhatsApp for Desktop only works on Google’s Chrome Browser so far.  Another limitation is that it only works for Anrdoid, BlackBerry and Windows Phone so far. Not for the iPhone…

And this is how it works:

To connect your web browser to your WhatsApp client, simply open https://web.whatsapp.com in your Google Chrome browser. You will see a QR code — scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and you’re ready to go. You have now paired WhatsApp on your phone with the WhatsApp web client. Your phone needs to stay connected to the internet for the web client to work, and please make sure to install the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone.

whatsappOn my BlackBerry Passport despite having had the latest version installed I could not find the Whats App Web option. Deleting WhatsApp and reinstalling fixed this issue.

Once connected you are good to go and chat away, send pictures or even give the website access to your computers camera and take pictures from it…

If you are a user of are a user of a BlackBerry Passport, Classic or Porsche P9983 having a save connection to your phone and BBM via notebook, computer or a tablet is yesterdays news…

The interesting thing on the WhatsApp way would be to understand how secure it is, but little is known about this. WhatsApp is having no information on their website. That being said my Messenger of choice remains BBM.

BBM for Windows Phone gets updated, brings new Features…

Finally BBM on Windows Phone made it to Version 2.0.0.24 and brings the features in that are since some time available on the other platforms.

The new features are:

  • BBM Shop with Stickers
  • Timed Messages
  • Message Retraction

If not set differently the update will be installed automatically on your phone so check your BBM app to see the changes yourself.

confirmed: BBM coming to Windows Phone in July..

On today mornings BlackBerry earnings call, the CEO of BlackBerry John Chen dropped word that BBM for Windows Phone will be arriving in July. We already knew that is was coming. It was known already to arrive in summer, but now we know for sure that in just a few weeks Windows Phone users will be able to get hands on BBM as well.

That makes it a true cross platform messenger at that time serving BlackBerry, Android, iPhone and Windows Phone devices.

App Review: Deezer Unlimited for Windows Phone…

I am very often using Deezer on my computer to listen to music. So I checked if there is an App for Deezer in the WindowsPhone Store and it was. Well sort of. There is an app called Deezer Unlimited. It promises you for a fee of 6.99 to have a lifetime subscription. The screenshots are not the real ones as well. So this one is a compete fake. The app does nothing at all as giving you nonsense links.

This App is a pure rip off and does nothing else thank taking the money off you.  Looking at the other Apps WP Team is offering they seem to follow the same scheme. Useless.

I have obviously reported this App to Microsoft as i want the credit back for that piece of junk. The App developer has of course no way of contact in the store or the App..

Resume: Keep your hands off that developers Apps.  0 out of 5 stars (0 / 5)
