WhatsApp Desktop is the desktop version of WhatsApp, one of the world's most popular instant messaging clients. Thanks to this client, you can easily read and write messages on your computer without checking your phone each time you get a notification.

To be able to start using WhatsApp Desktop, the first thing you have to do is sign in with your WhatsApp account, which is a quick and simple process that will only take a few seconds. You just need to use the WhatsApp app on your smartphone to scan the QR code on the computer screen. Once you complete this first step, you will have to wait a few moments for your conversations and groups to sync, and then you'll be ready to go.

One of WhatsApp Desktop 's most important parts is that it offers the same features as the mobile version, but just on PC. This means you can continue any private conversation, send and receive photos, share audio, use GIFs and emojis, etc. In short, there isn't a noticeable difference in user experience between the Windows, Android, or iOS clients.

There isn't much difference either between the browser versions (called WhatsApp Web) and this client for Windows. The main difference is that this version works independently without needing a browser open. This can be pretty useful on computers with little RAM capacity, which tend to slow down when many open tabs.

WhatsApp Desktop is a very useful app for frequent WhatsApp users since it allows them to continue chatting with their friends as they sit comfortably in front of their computer instead of with a phone in hand. As mentioned above, the app offers all the usual WhatsApp features.
