The latest feature of WhatsApp, the WhatsApp Web is finally here and you can download the latest version of the WhatsApp app for Android to get access to this feature. Though several users reported that even version v2.11.498 was showing the WhatsApp Web feature, that was not seen in the app we had, and the latest one was where we found the web feature available.
APKMirror was able to grab the latest version already, and we here have the APK version of it if you already wanted to check out the Web feature and start using WhatsApp from your Chrome browser. Following are the details for the same.

The Change log mentioned for this particular version of WhatsApp says “Introducing WhatsApp Web”, thus this could be the official version from which the feature might be available, but we are just guessing.
To access WhatsApp Web, go to web.whatsapp.com and you will see a barcode on the same page. Open WhatsApp latest version after installing it on your Android smartphone, and in the menu you will see the option of “WhatsApp Web”. It will open the barcode scanner of itself and then you can scan the same and all the WhatsApp chats and groups will be accessible from the web version.
From the settings, we are able to notice that you can add multiple computers and this is pretty slick, for those who choose the usage from their computers rather than from the smaller smartphone screens.
Let us know if you face any issues, while either installing the latest version of WhatsApp by APK file or while accessing the WhatsApp web feature on your computer browser. Remember to use Google Chrome browser for the web access.
