It appears that the hugely popular WhatsApp mobile instant messaging service is going to be made available via the web, if the just launched web sign-in page is to be believed.
The service had in excess of 500 million users back in April 2014 but after being bought by Facebook in February 2014 there was much speculation as to the future of the service.
Still going strong today, the service is about to expand onto its next platform – the web. Login page https://web.whatsapp.com/ is live with a QR code to login from your existing WhatsApp connected mobile. This is not yet currently working but expect it to go live soon.
