WhatsApp made waves when it launched a desktop version of its messaging service last month, but it was only compatible with Google Chrome. Today, the company has announced it now works on Firefox and Opera too.

As with Chrome, you’ll need to launch the Web client on your browser and scan a QR code with your phone to log in.

The desktop service only works with Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices, leaving iOS users in the lurch.
