Are you into instant messaging? We have some good news for those of you who use WhatsApp. As announced on Twitter yesterday, the WhatsApp web client now officially supports Opera for computers.

So, when you’re texting your friends on the go, you can easily continue all conversations on your desktop computer or laptop once you reach it, instead of having to switch between two devices.

Chat with your friends through Whatsapp in Opera

To chat with your WhatsApp contacts in Opera on your computer, go to and scan the QR code displayed there, using WhatsApp on your phone. (You’ll also see simple instructions on this same page.) To date, this login function has been implemented for Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, S40 and S60. Hopefully, iOS will follow soon, as well.

Have fun chatting with your friends!

    Do you want to buy life insurance for the first time? You are probably wondering how much you need, which policy is best, and which insurance company to purchase from. Like any other new experience, buying life insurance can be a little intimidating. The following 6 tips will make the process easier.

    1. Figure out why you need it

    It’s important to understand why you need life insurance. While most people need to buy a life insurance policy at one point in their lives, don’t purchase one just because you think you should. It’s designed to provide families with a financial safety net in the event of a parent’s or spouse’s death. Life insurance policies can help in paying for college education, mortgages, and retirement funds. For this reason, if you have several dependents, you should seriously consider life insurance. Your family’s future needs might not be of immediate importance right now, but you should consider buying at least a “starter” policy. The younger you are, the less expensive your life insurance premiums will be.

      i have the same problem with opera 38.0. It’s based on chrome 51 but whatsapp web says it doesn’t support my browser.

  • Nope, thanks. I use Telegram and it has always worked on all browsers.

    whatsapp for web is a good initiative for people who have to work on pc for long hours and forget to check their phones…so now they can just switch a tab and keep connected to whatsapp

    I don’t get it. It *always* worked in Opera, right from launch. They said “works on Chrome”, but I guess it worked in any Chromium/Blink based browser.

    using Opera 12.12. WhatsApp doesn’t recognize it as supported browser….
