Want to get whatsapp for pc?

Well, that is simply a wonderful idea!

What is Whatsapp Online?

Whatsapp messenger is a cool mobile messaging app which is extremely popular among those for whom texting is a way of life! Whatsapp online app which is available for Android based phones, iPhones, Blackberry and Windows based phones allows users to share text messages, videos, pictures and also audio messages with each other without having to pay any sms charges.

The best thing about this app is that you can send messages to anyone in any corner of the world using your internet data plan which you use for surfing the internet and for checking emails at a fraction of the cost which you would need to incur earlier if you were to send an sms message to some friend or relative in another country.

What is more, you can create groups where you can interact with a number of friends or family members at the same time! Awesome whatsapp emoticons make th conversations all the more fun and zappy, making this form of messaging hugely popular. So much so that regular sms senders like me now find those boring plain text messages so passé`.

Why You Need Whatsapp For PC?

The only limitation with this form of messaging is that it is available only on comparatively higher end cell phones- Android based ones, Blackberries, iPhones and Windows based ones, as mentioned earlier thus depriving all those who do not possess these costly phones of all the fun!

Well, the good news is that you can now download whatsapp messenger on your pc without having to loosen your purse strings or buying another, costlier phone just to be able to stay in touch with your loved ones.

I do have an android based phone. And a 5 inch phablet at that. But using whatsapp on pc is much more fun. :D

Good bye to small buttons on your cell phone. And to all the typos you made while texting. Now, you have a full keyboard at your disposal!

Could it get any better than this?
The only problem with downloading whatsapp on pc is that you can run it EITHER on your pc or your cell phone at a time. When I downloaded it first a few days back, I got greedy and enjoyed this cool app on my laptop for a while. But then, you can not carry your laptop with you wherever you go, unlike your cell phone. Every time I wanted to sign back from my handset, I would have to go through the cumbersome verification process, due to which I finally gave up using whatsapp on computer.

Do share your experiences with us if you are enjoying whatsapp download! :)

  4. Can anyone help me out to install Whatsapp in iPhone for free?

  5. This is great Ambika, but I just don’t like it because of the reason you mentioned at the end. It’s cumbersome to go through the verification process again.

    • Thanks, Malhar. I am honored to see you visit the blog.
      Whatsapp for pc is basically for people who do not have cell phones which support this form of messaging. I too thought I’d be able to log in at both the devices when I downloaded the entire software from bluestacks. And messaging from the laptop keyboard Aand being able to use those lovely emoticons was simply too cool!! :)
      But then I saw that I was unable to do log in from my cell phone. And I thought that I MUST share that too with my readers so that they do not go through the entire process of downloading it like me, only to uninstall it later.

  6. Wow awesome, i was thinking about it, is it possible or not? btw thanks

  7. Thanks for sharing the post!!
    Bluestacks is the best software to run android applications on your desktop and whatsapp is the mostly used by the android users to chat which is very effective..So download bluestacks and no need to buy a android device.

  8. It worked but is there any way with the Virtual Box too? Let me know please. Thanks. :)
