WhatsApp in Opera’s desktop browser
WhatsApp Web messenger is integrated with your sidebar in Opera for computers, so you’ll never miss a message.
WhatsApp on your desktop
WhatsApp Web messenger is one of the most popular free messaging apps in the world. It lets you send texts and voice recordings, make phone calls, and share documents and other media with WhatsApp users in individual or group chat. When you use WhatsApp Web on your computer, you can do all of this for free over the internet, rather than using your mobile network.

WhatsApp is already one of the default messengers built into the Opera computer browser. Keep an eye on a group chat while you browse the web, or keep the conversation going while you work.
Pair your phone with Opera!
There's no need to download WhatsApp Web. Click the WhatsApp logo in your Opera sidebar to open it, and click the logo again to hide it. Setup is easy - just scan the QR code to pair your phone's WhatsApp account with your computer.
