Once upon a time, WhatsApp Web used to be a boon, especially when you are spending long hours working on your computer and need to be able to quickly see any WhatsApp messages without having to keep a check over your phone.
For many years, it worked just fine, being just the thing we needed too. However, for a few weeks now, with some new changes, the web version of WhatsApp whether through its site or the desktop app version has become more a terror and headache than anything useful.
Perhaps this is cause of the the owners behind WhatsApp now, since you can see it going down the same frustrating path that the other social media app that they own, causing more problems than being a smooth application of use.
Here we take a look at a few ways that the new changes have made WhatsApp Web more of a terror than something good to use.
No Link Preview
Earlier if you put a link in the chat box, you would see a preview of the title and sometimes even the feature image of it. However, for the past few weeks now that has been missing, in both desktop app and WhatsApp Web version.
Chats are apparently missing, in that, if you are searching for some particular thing in a chat and do a search of it, nothing will come. You have to manually scroll till whatever message you believe that particular thing is at to find it.
There is also the issue of how you can’t see older chat messages on WhatsApp Web and have to do it through your phone now. This is especially cumbersome while working and you’re looking for a specific thing.
Media Needing To Be Deleted Twice
Deleting media has also become bothersome since anything you delete on the Web version it doesn’t get deleted on phone. This is not just limited to media, but even chats that are deleted don’t get deleted on phone and you have to do twice the work constantly.
Voice Call Issue
There is also the issue of the voice call where basically if you call someone from your WhatsApp desktop app they won’t get the call on their own desktop. Instead, they will get it on their phone only. Vice versa if they call from the WhatsApp desktop you won’t get the notification on your computer, but will get it on your phone only.
