How to delete chats from the WhatsApp Web App and other new improvement
In January 2015, WhatsApp had released a facility that allowed users to access their WhatsApp messages and chat directly from the computers with the only catch being that you had to be running the Google Chrome web browsers (more on how to connect here).
This facility has been applauded as not only can you use the keyboard to type messages, but can also copy-and-paste information from messages which is handy when you need URL, Telephone numbers,Email address. There is also the added advantage of not having to stop what you are doing to look at the phone when a new message arrives which can be disturbing.
When the Web WhatsApp facility was initially launched it was functional and basic and as predicted it would improve over time which it has as I accidentally discovered while clicking around the web app.
The new improvements are: Being able to delete chats directly from the Web App and Being able to Exit Groups, Add Participant and Mute Groups form the web App. The Web App mirrors the WhatsApp app on the phone and of course anything you do on the phone would be replicated on the the Web, however this just makes it simple without having to leave the web client.
