Up until recent time it was impossible to download WhatsApp for PC without Bluestack Android emulator.
There was a web client and a Chrome plugin, but no desktop client. With its competitors already offering desktop clients, thus expanding their reach, WhatsApp was idle.
As we said, this was up until recent time, and then the things changed. In case you didn’t know, it is now possible to download and install WhatsApp for PC and use it in sync with your iPhone app.
In order to guide you through the process we decided to create this tutorial. By the end of the article, you will be able to download WhatsApp for PC yourself.

You don’t need a powerful PC, mountains of RAM or anything like that. So let’s see what we do need in order to install WhatsApp on PC.
- Windows 7 or 8 OS needed. Some users report problems with Windows 10 but you can give it a try and see if it works.
- Stable internet connection; you won’t be able to chat if the client is not online. (make sure that you have a good wireless router)
- Existing WhatsApp account so that you can synchronize your desktop client and iPhone app.
