Whatsapp messenger allows you to send free messages all over the world. The service runs on your internet connection. Therefore, there is no need to pay for anything, except the $0.99 annual subscription once you pass over the first free year. Whatsapp is meant for Android, iOS, Blackberry, Nokia and Java phones. However, the great news is that now, we are able to install Whatsapp on PC, and use it, in the same way, as we use it on our mobile devices. For this, all you have to do is to follow the following three-step guide.
1. Downloading Bluestacks
In order to make Whatsapp for PC download work, you need to download an Android emulator. The emulator’s job is to make all those great mobile apps work on a computer. In this case, I recommend Bluestacks since it is one of the most downloaded emulators available, and it is also free of charge. The emulator can work on Windows 7, 8, Vista or XP. This software helps you run android apps and games on PC. Therefore, the first step is to download Bluestacks from their official website. However, keep in mind the fact that the program needs a good graphics card and hardware to work. Also, you will need at least 2 GB of RAM memory and a good graphic card.
2. Installing Bluestacks
The second step is to install the software. Just click on the exe file of Bluestacks and wait a couple of minutes until the program is installed. After this, you will have to create a Bluestacks account, which will be linked with the Google account. In this way, you will have all your installed apps right at hand.
3. Installing Whatsapp for PC
The last step involved searching and installing Whatsapp. For this, open Bluestacks by double-clicking on its icon. Wait some time since the first launch might take some extra time. Then, a window will open, and you will be able to see the search bar in the upper left corner. Here, type down Whatsapp. Keep in mind that you will need a working internet connection in order to download the application. Click on Whatsapp and install it. Again, wait a couple of moments, because the list of results might take a while to appear.
Now, Whatsapp will be installed on your Windows PC. It is important to remember to launch Bluestacks each time you want to launch and use Whatsapp. Only with the help of the emulator you will be able to run the cross-platform messenger on your computer.
This is all. You may know enjoy Whatsapp on your computer. Whatsapp has many more interesting things to offer besides its main feature: to connect people in a free manner. Also, you will have the possibility to share media files such as images, pictures, videos or audio notes. In the same time, you get to set a profile picture or a status while you can make your text messages more joyful with multiple emoticons and smiley faces.
