How to download and install WhatsApp Desktop on your PC and Mac

3.5 Rating: 3.5 - 619 votes

If you want to install and use the WhatsApp Desktop app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use WhatsApp Desktop for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Andriod emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: WhatsApp Desktop for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type WhatsApp Desktop in the search bar and press Search. Click on WhatsApp Desktop application icon. A window of WhatsApp Desktop on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Andriod device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the WhatsApp Desktop icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: WhatsApp Desktop for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use WhatsApp Desktop for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. You can get here .

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

    How does this not have spell check/native text replacemnt? Besides that really cool, but this is a deal breaker.

  • Don’t like it

    By AnonymousGentelmen
    I can’t use the app if there is no internet conncetion on the phone. Whats the point having an app on desktop and not be able to use it. Also, there is no voice and video calling availability. I would definitely give five star if all the functionaliy is there. Otherwise, the app is just using the space on computer.
  • Needs video chat

    By MrClarenceJohn
    Theres no call feature
  • Would have had 5 stars if…..

    By Mknissan
    This app would have 5 stars when they allow us to make video calls from the desktopp app. Please add that feature!!
  • What is happening over there in the Whatsapp mothership??

    By _Jake___
    Tells me I need to “update” the desktop app. I click update. Takes me to chrome where I’m prompted to go to the app store, so I go there. I download the update. I click open, then it tells me I need to “update” the app. I go around in circles wondering what year this is. Why is nothing visible until you update? Get it together! Also, there’s no ipad app for this? Did whatsapp know there was an ipad? Maybe I should get a job there.
  • Always liked this app until I can’t upgrade it

    By LynnKuh
    I’m on Mac El Captain which is still capatible with your upgrade. I’m redirected to the Mac Store but when I get there it says to open the application which then redirects me back to Upgrade. Basically cannot use the Desktop version of WhatsApp.
  • I see the Improvement

    By Athaariq
    Always keep users satisfied, it’s really good for you. For the last star, it would be 5 stars if you let desktop version runs without phone’s attendance (most of your competitors did this, don’t lose your fame!)
  • Meh... not much better than the web version, and still needs the phone

    By carlos66ba
    Why? Why? Why? Why can't this app (or the web version) simply work WITHOUT THE PHONE? We are near 2020 and we still have ARTIFICIAL RESTRICTIONS on what networked devices can do? I mean, authenticate and then just work... No need to keep bitbanging back and forth to the phone... These people need to hire some good brains to work things out.
  • Doesn’t update on High Sierra

    By Iggy Sweet Rains
    Hope this will be fixed soon , crashes on High Sierra and wouldn’t update on a Mac Store. Sad.
