After the release of web.whatsapp, many people complaint about some missing features or about some features to be included. Here are the most discussed issue that are missing in web.whatsapp.
#1 Your mobile should be connected to internet for accessing web.whatsapp
This is one of the biggest issue with web.whatsapp. Even though they are telling you can access whatsapp online, you should have access to your mobile device for doing this. Since whatsapp doesn’t have any username or password options, your mobile is the only way to uniquely identify you. As we told above, your latest whatsapp contains a QR code scanner which scans the QR code provided in the website. Thus sync your account to whatsapp online.
One way they can resolve this issue is by introducing a username and password option so that users can access online whatsapp without their mobile phone. Millions of people those who have no smartphone can make use of this feature. Just like Facebook works.
