WhatsApp is one of the most widely used mobile tools on the planet, and its focus on mobile users helped it succed. But, its purchase by Facebook stalled the Windows 10 app for many. That is until now, with a desktop app of WhatsApp now available.
With over 1 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is a force to be dealt with, and definitely deserves a desktop app. Now, by scanning a QR code with your phone, you can sync your app to your phone and start using WhatsApp on your desktop.
An Extension Of The Phone
The WhatsApp is not meant to replace the mobile experience of WhatsApp, but build an extension from your phone to the desktop. It mirrors the conversations and messages, and gives you a better experience on the desktop.
It runs natively on the desktop, and includes desktop notifications, better keyboard shortcuts, and is promised by WhatsApp to give users frequent updates. This desktop extension should be a huge hit for Windows 10 fans.
Should You Download It?
If you use WhatsApp on a daily basis, your phone can limit you on the amount of creativeness and notifications you can receive using the service. Now with it on the desktop and tablet world, it takes those shackles off the user.
You can download the app initially via WhatsApp directly, and its planning to be launched on the Windows Store before too long. It’s a free app, takes seconds to install, and minutes to get used for hours to come in the future.
Try WhatsApp on your Windows 10 desktop now. If you love the mobile experience, you will love the desktop one more on Windows 10.
