When it comes to communication apps for smartphones, WhatsApp is the top choice for a majority of users. But now, its developers have also launched its desktop version that you can use on your Windows PC.
You can send text messages, voice notes, images, videos, documents, and contacts. Emojis and GIF images make chatting with your friends more exciting.
How to Use WhatsApp for PC
In order to use WhatsApp on a desktop PC, your smartphone and your computer should be connected to the internet. Select the option “WhatsApp Web” via the menu of mobile app and then scan the QR code. This will provide you access to the app on your PC.
The option of QR code scan may seem unnecessary, but it protects your messages from unauthorized users.
Don’t you enjoy talking to your group of friends?
The group chat option in this software facilitates you to share messages with multiple friends simultaneously by adding them to a group. It’s expected that the developers will also introduce group calling feature down the line.
A group admin controls the group and can decide which users should join the group. So, whether you want to make an outing plan with your friends or want to reminisce about the memories of your college days, you can avail the group chat feature.
Anything new happened in your life? Share it with your social circle via a status update!
You can add a status in the form of text, audio or video content. Also, you can check the status updates of your friends and respond to them. This way, you can stay connected with your friends and family.
Managing your contact list had never been this easy! The software displays the list of contacts saved in your smartphone that already use WhatsApp. You can talk to them individually or create a new group. You can view their profiles where you’ll find their contact information and content you shared with them.
If any contact bugs you or sends you inappropriate messages, you can block them. This way, you won’t receive their messages and can use this software safely.
WhatsApp is a native app through which you can send messages to your friends. The software automatically encrypts all messages for secure communication. Its interface is similar to that of the smartphone app, so it won’t take you long to get accustomed to its features.
