Finally!!! Whatsapp is now a standalone desktop client! I know most of us who use extensions from browsers to have that messenger type feeling. Seeing how I have many Whatsapp groups it is hard to fiddle with my phone back and forth with messages when I could do all of my chatting with my Mac or PC. Now they released a web app that allowed for this to work but the benefit of having a desktop client is notifications and ease ability.
First go here to download the client. Then you may need to do one more thing once you have the client. Go to Whatsapp on your phone..
Once you go there on the desktop application they will prompt you to scan the QR code that is on the screen
And that is it! Already started to use this very convenient messaging app already. Sadly no video chat available as yet but voice notes and using the camera of your computer or laptop is all here. Good bye Blue Stacks app. Hello Whatsapp messaging.
