Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is App for WA Web?
App for WA Web is a browser app (similar to addon) which provides you with the easiest way to access and check WhatsApp from your desktop machine (PC, MAC).

2. How do I work with this browser App?
Working with this App is very easy. Just add it to your browser from the link provided above (Chrome web store). Once the App is installed, click on the launch button in the extension page. The UI will load WhatsApp Web application in a floating window (panel). This window is resizable to your desired choice. Once you change the size, the next time you load the app, the window will load with the new size. There are 5 buttons at the top section to enhance using this App. From left to right, there is refresh button to reload the panel (in case something goes wrong within WhatsApp page). The next button is pop-out and designed to open WhatsApp in a new tab. Note, this operation will close the current window and load WhatsApp in a fresh new tab (not window). This is because WhatsApp cannot be opened in more than one window at the same time. Third button is dedicated to pin action. In other words, when thin button is clicked the window will remain always in top (note the button icon will also change). Next button is for inverting the colors on the main WhatsApp window. It uses CSS filter technology to do the job, and adds the effect for all elements, including images and text. It is very useful in night time for reading or writing messages. Please note, when you invert the colors, images may not look very good. This issue will be solved in future updates. The last button is for opening the support page.
