Whatsapp Web?

  • I was making the change from Chrome to Vivaldi and: aaaaargh! Whatsapp Web won't run. Will I have to continue with Chrome or is there a workaround in Vilaldi to make Whatsapp Web work?

    Which version of Vivaldi did you try it in? The most recent developer versions have better compatibility with certain extensions.

  • I'm using 1.1.453.59 (Stable channel) (32-bit). I get an information popup when trying to initialise Whatsapp Web:
    To use WhatsApp Web, update Safari or use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.

    You could try 1.2.490.3 at https://vivaldi.net/ and see if that is any better…

  • I just updated but I still get the same problem. It seems Whatsapp Web is looking for an 'approved' browser and Vivaldi is not on the list. I will see if I can download an extension which will spoof the browser being used.

  • Success! I installed User Agent Switcher. WW worked after setting UAS to Chrome/default.

  • You now can also install the Whatsapp desktop version :cheer:

  • I'm using WA web since 2-3 months and the site always worked for me out-of-the-box
