WhatsApp needs no introduction, most of us have account with it and is now a part of our daily routine. We serve most of your time on WhatApp and Facebook and both are owned by same organisation now. In old days when WhatsApp was launched, it was only available for mobile devices and tablets but later they introduced a web-based version of WhatsApp, which is called WhatsApp web. Before introduction of “WhatsApp Web” people were using Android emulator apps like bluestacks and youwave to install WhatsApp on their Windows and Mac computers.
But thankfully WhatsApp now officially launched WhatsApp desktop version that can be run and install on your Windows PC and Mac. I’ve tested it on my Windows 10 PC and it is also surely working on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and other former Windows’ versions.
What’s new in it?
Nothing new in it, it has same features just like WhatsApp web. Even the UI is same as WhatsApp web. You can enjoy all of the features on your desktop now like sending and receiving texts, images, videos and music. Moreover, you can set your favorite WhatsApp status, can change your profile picture and also can do all configurations from your desktop now.
How to Download and Install it?
Head over to WhatsApp’s official website and download WhatsApp on PC for Windows or Mac and install it.
Use your iPhone, iPad, Android or Blackberry’s camera and verify your WhatsApp account via QR code shown on your desktop screen and start using it just like WhatsApp web.
Benefit of this Update:
- You don’t need to keep your browser open all the time to check latest updates on WhatsApp.
- Browsers like Google Chrome consumes high resources so less opened browser tabs can keep resources usage lower.
- You don’t need to open browser every time you want to check WhatsApp, just move to your desktop of Windows or Mac and you’re done.
- Enjoy Instant notifications on desktop instead of checking in browse
