WhatsApp Web for Vivaldi!



  • Do you guys ever consider bringing WhatsApp to Vivaldi? If you go to web.whatsapp.com it says that you need certain browsers to acces WhatsApp on your computer (Chrome, Opera etc) so it'd be great if I could use WhatsApp without needing my phone. That's the only thing Vivaldi lacks for me right now. :P

    Actually… Vivaldi DO support WhatsApp Web. But WhatsApp Web do NOT support Vivaldi. So you better complain there (WhatsApp).

    For example spamming them (WhatsApp) every single week could be enough :whistle: but I have never said it, do you understand?! :cheer:



  • Haha, fair enough. :P

    they dont support yet
    we should complaint about it



  • When people stop using IM services (or any other kind) that have so many locking up restrictions, we will get better services. WhatsApp no privacy?! No, thank you! I wouldn't use it if it were the only IM service on the planet, for at least one reason (and there are many important others).

    I have used XMPP for years - and it works on as much mobiles as possible, and just as good as it works on any PC. And I don't need to buy or have anything I didn't have 10 years ago to create a new account, if myself or friends want/need that! With XMPP, like emails, we can choose in which server we will have our accounts. And whatever it is, we'll be able to talk with anyone from any other server around the whole world! VOIP, images, files, groups, everything it's possible. But just the giant groups (like "that" one that owns whatsapp today) doesn't think this is a good $trategy to have…



  • Hello,
    is it possible that Vivaldi works with WhatsappWeb in the latest build? I do not have an extension for changing the user agent, and yet - it's working.
    Does the rest also notice this?

    Maybe my complaint at Whatsapp did help ;-)

    Regards,
    Thorsten

    P.S.: Great work at Vivaldi! You keep on implementing great features as we were used from Opera! :woohoo: :woohoo:



  • Now it changed again. It's no longer working. Changing the user agent does not help. :(



  • I use extension Chrome UA spoofer and identify as Firefox for windows on web.whatsapp and everything else works but videos.

    Not working for me. :(
    Today I used WhatsApp via Vivaldi, but I just tried to open it again, and couldn't.



  • Everything works as usual in my Vivaldi, so I don't know whatsapp

    I think I saw someone reporting mismatching useragent strings on secure and nonsecure sites, maybe it's related?

    Same issue. I've tried 'User-agent switcher' plugins and it doesn't seem to help



  • Don’t forget that the app development process includes quality assurance, project management and DevOps. When you implement a set of features, these processes will be added as a percent of the final time and cost http://djangostars.com/blog/how-much-does-it-cost-to-build-a-messaging-app-like-whatsapp/ :wrestlers_tone3:
