In January 2015, WhatsApp launched a fantastic feature of Whatsapp web. Using this feature, we can access the super fantastic application on the computer system using web browsers. However, you need to scan a QR code on your mobile device in your WhatsApp to access your data on the web.
Once you scan that QR code successfully on your mobile device, your WhatsApp data and contacts appear on your PC screen. Sometimes, it is very techy to scan to that QR code. And you may face the issue of accessing your WhatsApp data on your web browser.
Whatsapp Web Camera Not Working – Best Possible Fixes
Let me list some of the reasons and solutions to those reasons if you face issues with WhatsApp web camera not working.
1. Internet Connectivity
You must have a good quality internet connection working on your mobile device and your computer system. Poor internet connection may result in trouble establishing your WhatsApp web. It can even restrain your mobile camera from scanning a QR code. As the QR code refreshes every 30-60 seconds, the poor connection may delay or trouble the process.
And that may result in a failed connection. If your camera is not working while scanning a QR code for WhatsApp web, then I would recommend you check or switch your internet connection.
2. Third-party Scanner App
I would like to tell you that if you are facing issues with the camera while connecting to the WhatsApp web, don’t use any third-party scanner app. Firstly of all, these available apps are not safe. Moreover, it can breach your data privacy.
I always recommend you to use the WhatsApp scanner to scan QR code. As WhatsApp would not integrate any other QR scan with it.
3. Small Screen
If your mobile device screen is small in size, you must face an issue while scanning the QR code to connect to the WhatsApp web. Don’t worry; I can guide you with the solution. Follow the steps listed below: –
- You can rotate your mobile device screen to the left, or you can rotate your desktop screen, however, rotating desktop screens can be a bit tricky.
- Or you can take a screenshot of your desktop screen, rotate that image and scan the code on your mobile device, there you go!
- In small-screen mobile devices, there is an issue with tilt edges of the QR code while trying to scan it. And WhatsApp web camera doesn’t work correctly in that case. You need to try adjusting your camera to scan it and connect it to your PC.
I can understand that it is a bit tricky to do it, but with a little more effort, you will be able to connect over the WhatsApp web.
4. Broken Rear Camera
Last but not the least, if your mobile phone rear camera is broken and you are unable to scan QR code using it, you won’t be able to connect on it by any which ways. In this case, the only option left is that you can install Whatsapp on different mobile devices and try connecting from it.
Another option you can follow to access your WhatsApp data on your PC is through an android emulator on your computer system.
I have listed above the reason or errors you may face for WhatsApp web camera not working, you can try with the solutions. I am positive that it will help you in resolving your issue.
