WhatsApp is the most important application for chatting and direct communication. But it is no secret to anyone that the experience of using it on the PC is not the best. Especially if it is compared to competing applications such as Telegram, or even compared to an application from the same company, which is Messenger.
Among the shortcomings of the WhatsApp application on the PC is that it only works when the phone on which the number is registered is connected to the Internet.
Although the experience is not perfect, today we are going to share with you some tips and tricks that will greatly improve your user experience. These tips will be ideal if you are using WhatsApp on PC through the browser and not through the Windows application. And that's because we're going to be using some plugins.

How to open more than one WhatsApp account on the same device
It is easy to use more than one WhatsApp account on your smartphone, this is known, whether through the built-in options in the phones that allow cloning the WhatsApp application or by relying on the WhatsApp Business application.
In order to do the same thing on the computer, you have more than one solution, the first solution is to open the account in the Incognito / Private window, but once you close this window, the account will be closed and you will need to log in every time, so this solution works only when it is one-time use.
On the contrary, if you want to use a second account permanently, you should solve one of the following simple solutions:
Open an account on the browser and an account on the Windows application
Open an account on your main browser and an account on another browser
Use the Containers feature in Firefox to separate the records of each tab
Read messages without the blue checkmarks appearing on the other end
The message read indicator, Read Receipts, is a feature in WhatsApp that allows both parties to know whether the other party has read the message or not, but on WhatsApp Web, you can read messages freely without this indicator appearing, and this is simply by relying on the WAToolKit extension.
Classify and arrange messages professionally
The main app screen is usually full of messages and conversations, some of them are work, some are personal, some are messages you haven't answered, some are official, etc.
The WhatsApp Tabs application, which comes in the form of an extension for Chrome, allows you to divide conversations into tabs according to the type of message, which is shown to us in the following image, and you can download the WhatsApp Tabs extension for free.
