Yesterday (10 May) Whatsapp introduced a desktop app for its users to stay better connected. Like its earlier release WhatsApp Web, the new desktop app is an extension of the phone that mirrors conversations and messages from the users’ mobile device. Just like WhatsApp Web, the new desktop app lets users message friends and family while their phone stays in their pockets.
The new desktop app is available for Windows 8+ and Mac OS 10.9+ and is synced with WhatsApp on the mobile device.
Describing the benefits of the new app in its blog, the world’s most popular instant messaging platform for smartphones said: “Because the app runs natively on your desktop, you’ll have support for native desktop notifications, better keyboard shortcuts, and more.”
To download the app, visit https://www.whatsapp.com/download from your desktop browser. Then, open the app and scan the QR code using the WhatsApp app on your phone (look for WhatsApp Web menu under Settings).Follow us on Social Media
