To successfully use the web based WhatsApp client these two things are important. First thing is, your WhatsApp application must be updated to the latest version. The older version of the app does not support QR scan capabilities and is hence incompatible. When you click on the 3 dots settings and ‘WhatsApp Web’ doesn’t show up, that means you have an older version installed. So you first need to update it to the latest version from your respective app store.
