A guide on sending multimedia WhatsApp messages using WhatsApp Web on your desktop.

If you’re new to WhatsApp Web and wondering how you could send content other than the usual emoji-infested text messages, you?ve come to the right place. Today, we?re going to show you how easy it?ll be to spam your WhatsApp contacts with photos of your snoozing cat or a clip of yourself suggestively eating a banana or licking an ice cream. Just pray that your irritated friend won?t upload to Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere that can?make you an instant social media star. That said, let?s get down to business.

How WhatsApp Web works

Are you one of those long-time WhatsApp users who wished that there could be a way for you to send and receive messages right from your laptop? Because you know, there are more productive things to do than to pull out your phone from your pocket and browse through those endless chat threads in an annoyingly tiny screen. Well, we do know how elated you were when the messenger finally launched an official desktop client back in January.

Good thing WhatsApp Web stayed true to it?s mobile counterpart?s simple interface. If you haven?t used this service until now, you probably should because you?ll be surprised how easy it is to set up and navigate. We actually posted a quick tutorial on how it?s done. WhatsApp Web, unfortunately, only works on Android and Windows Phone devices for now. But if you want it to work on your iPhone, then you better check out a neat, little tool called WhatsApp Web Enabler.

Steps on how to send photos, videos, and voice messages on WhatsApp Web

So you already know how to have the desktop version running on your computer. Now it?s time to add a little spice to your conversations by adding in other forms of media. Grab your pen, notepad, journal, chalkboard or whatever and take note of the easy steps on sending multimedia messages on WhatsApp Web.

  • Follow the procedure listed in this tutorial so you can sync your phone?s WhatsApp messages on WhatsApp Web on your computer.
  • Open a conversation thread and click on the attachment icon (shaped like a paper clip) located on the upper right corner of the interface.
  • You will then be presented with two options: the Gallery icon for attaching a photo or video that?s already saved on your computer and a Camera icon so you can use your desktop?s own camera to snap photos or shoot videos and send them right away.
  • If you like to send a voice message, just click on the microphone icon on the right side of the text box. The first time you do that, the browser will ask you if you want to allow or deny WhatsApp Web from using your computer?s microphone. Just choose ?Allow,? click on the mic again and you?re good to go.

That?s all! Now enjoy spamming your, er, exchanging pictures and clips with your WhatsApp contacts!
