WhatsApp Goes Cross-Platform

Text-based communication has shifted in the last years from the traditional SMS (Short Message Service) to IM (instant messaging). WhatsApp is one of the biggest IM (SMS like) app on the market at this moment, if not the biggest and news about it have been missing the last year, since it was acquired by Facebook.
However, the communication company is back with great news for users all over the world. The company has fixed one of the major annoying issues it was facing: it turned cross-platform. See, until now very few popular IM apps were cross-platform (Hangouts, FB Messenger, Skype and a few more) and none of the IM apps that use your phone number as id were cross-platform.
WhatsApp has announced that now their users can use the application from their computers as well. All they have to do is go to the chat link for WhatsApp, scan a QR code for identification and login and just text away. This move has been seen as a method to counteract Hangouts which probably is the best multi-platform IM app/method.
However there is an issue with the web app, it only works for Android phones owners. WhatsApp has commented on this and stated that this was due to limitations of the Apple platform and that they are and will be working on fixing this. The statement is believable seeing how the majority of WhatsApp users own iPhones.
This is the correct direction WhatsApp should grow in and it’s almost a certainty they will gain more success after the fix the issue with iPhones.
