WhatsApp Web get redirected to WhatsApp homepage on Panel

  • web.whatsapp.com get redirected to www.whatsapp.com if opened in Web Panel, after checking on devtool, vivaldi use different user-agent string on Web Panel from regular browser tab

    WebPanel: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 6.0.1; SM-G920F Build/MMB29K) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/55.0.2883.98 Mobile Safari/537.36

    Browser tab: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/55.0.2883.98 Safari/537.36

  • @rudilee The panel uses the mobile version of sites.
    If you wish, by right-clicking on the icon in the panel you can switch it to the desktop version.

    Note: I don't use WhatsApp, so not sure if this will get it working.

    A few threads seem to suggest that a user agent switcher extension was needed in the past.

  • It used to be worked before, it just suddenly redirected, but today without doing anything it's just worked again, probably something deals with the WhatsApp side i guess, but now i know the switch to desktop option surely it will come in handy next time, thank you.
