I am sure that by this time, you all know something about Whatsapp and its features. The famous messaging service has become quite popular among Smartphone users mostly since it allows them to send and receive unlimited text messages in a free and simple manner. The great this is that now; we can share the same options right on our personal computers.
Officially, Whatsapp is available for download only on various smartphones and certain 3g-compatible tablets. This time, with the help of an alternative Android emulator, users can download Whatsapp for PC, as well as other interesting mobile apps and games. It is worth mentioning the fact that it does not cost you a penny, and it can be done in a matter of minutes.
Basically, you need to install an emulator, which I recommend choosing Bluestacks, and then, by launching the emulator, search for Whatsapp and download the messaging service on your computer. Next, you will be able to enjoy free chatting, group chats with your friends, sharing images and videos, etc.
However, before you go and use Whatsapp in the same manner as you use the application on your Smartphone, you need to configure it. For this, you will have to provide a reliable phone number in order to connect to your contacts. The number has to be different from the one you are using on your smartphones or tablet, or else, and you will have to re-verify it each time you launch the service.
For the first-time users, you will be asked to enter your country. Next, enter your phone number and click on OK. Windows will pop up saying verifying your phone number via SMS. Normally, you will get a three digit verification code on your number, and you need to type it on your computer. However, some users complained about not receiving the SMS. In this case, you need to choose the Call option. Whatsapp will contact you and automatically, a new code will be provided.
Once you input the code, it will check and create a new database on their servers. If you already have an account with Whatsapp, ten you can request for forget password as well.
Adding a new contact list is normally pretty simple, but, in the case of download Whatsapp for PC, this will not load automatically. You will have to add each contact manually. For this, head over to Bluestacks, search for Whatsapp under My Apps and launch it. This will give you access to its main menu.
Here, you will be able to see the Add new contact option. Click on it; enter the phone number you want to add and click on Done. This will add a contact to your contacts list. Do the same with the rest of your contacts and then you can enjoy using Whatsapp on PC for free chatting to your friends and family. I am sure that it might seem to be pretty time-consuming and annoying, but once you get the hang of it, everything will run smoothly.
