Currently, for one to use Whatsapp on a computer, they need to have their phone connected to the Internet. One then has to authenticate their account on computers by scanning a QR code on the web client through the built-in camera functionality within the WhatsApp application on their phone.

A report claims that soon, that will no longer be necessary. According to a recent tweet by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a new version of its desktop app that will work without authenticating with a phone.
