WhatsApp continues to provide a great platform for people to socialize. Features like the WhatsApp voice and video calls have gained popularity over the years since they were launched. People can now have free and unlimited conversations via WhatsApp as long as they have a working internet connection.

At some point, WhatsApp introduced the WhatsApp web and WhatsApp Desktop. WhatsApp web is a web-based platform that allows you to access your WhatsApp account on your PC.
