This issue only happens only on Brave since users can use the Brave web version with other browsers such as Google Chrome. While the issue hasn’t been addressed officially but there are a few possible ways to try the text messaging feature on Brave once more. I use and fixed with these steps.

I have tried all these methods but in vain. Whatsapp suddenly started working just and currently the chances of opening Whatsapp web is 9/10; yes sometimes the problem arises. I hope developers will fix this issue. Also, I only use brave browser.

Nightly version works for me…
