Yesterday, I took some screenshots on my phone so I can use them in the blog post where I explained how to make free calls with Whatsapp for Android.
After taking the screenshots, I thought of a way I can easily send the photos from the phone to my laptop without using email, dropbox, onedrive etc. So, I decided to try Whatsapp and it worked 🙂
This will easily work for you if you are using Whatsapp on at least two different phones. If not, there is a way out too. Just keep calm 🙂
All you need to do is to download and install the latest Whatsapp on one of your smartphones and activate “Whatsapp Web” on your PC web browser.
In my case, I use Whatsapp on my Blackberry Q10 and my Android phone. I enabled “Whatsapp Web” on my Android.
So, to send pictures to my PC, all I need to do is to attach the photos in a chat and send to my other Whatsapp number. Thereafter, I go to web.whatsapp.com on my PC web browser to open the chat.
Next is to right-click on the photos to save them to my PC.
If you don’t have another whatsapp account, you can send them to a friend but you will have to tell him/her to ignore the photos. If not, the person might think you’re high on cheap weed…lol
Try it and I can bet you will love it 😉
NB: This requires internet connection.
