Hey guys,

I created the original fix.

And now I share another way to use whatsapp web on nativefier. No code injection required.

Pressing ctrl+shift+i (on Linux) and the Devtools window will open. Then click on Application -> Service Workers And check the option Bypass for network.

Now press ctrl+r to reload. And ctrl+shift+i to close the Devtools.

Whenever you open your whatsapp the problem will occur, but since the Bypass for network option has already been enabled, you only need to press ctrl+shift+i (open devtools), ctrl+r (reload), ctrl+shift+i (close devtools)

@frealgagu, thanks for your work. This package was in my list as one of required apps to be installed after install Arch. I saw your last update ( document.querySelector("a[href='']") ), NICE/GREAT/GOOD!

Another way to do the same in 2 lines: document.querySelector("a[href='']") && navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then(r => r.unregister() && document.location.reload());

Isn't that security issue though?

The spellchecking capability is nice, but does anyone know if there's option to change the language somehow?

EDIT: See documentation. Perhaps it would be possible to insert this into whatsapp-nativefier-inject.js, and then check what lanuages someone is using at "build-time"?

@ector try cleaning the yay cache folder, if problem persists, try removing the user npm folder. If none of those helps you, you have two options, make a clean chroot compilation or download the generated package from

Any news on the "Old build detected" issue?

Is there a way to enable the tray icon?

Edit:Seems to be fixed now.

If you remove the --browserwindow-options '{ "webPreferences": { "spellcheck": true } }' it works perfectly

Edit: After the latest update this method does not work anymore, the only way i managed to get it working was through the devtools method

On startup, whatsapp-nativefier now complains about "Old build detected. This app was built a long time ago."

EDIT: Made a PR to resolve that.
