Here is a free Chrome extension to use WhatsApp in a pop-up without leaving the active tab. This extension is named “Desktop Messenger for WhatsApp“. Though WhatsApp Web is pretty good to access chats, start a new conversation, create a new group, mute, archive, pin, delete a chat, search for a chat, etc., the thing is we need to reserve a tab for it. And whenever we have to WhatsApp someone, we need to leave the active tab. This extension solves this problem. You can use WhatsApp web with just a click without navigating to any other tab and leaving the current tab.
Apart from using WhatsApp Web in a pop-up, this Chrome extension also notifies you of new messages. You will see a blinking number on its badge icon which indicates the number of unread notifications. The extension also lets you adjust the size of that pop-up and color of blinking number.
In the screenshot above, you can see WhatsApp is visible in a pop-up.
