WhatsApp Finally Has a Desktop App

By Jamie Condliffe on at

The future might be mobile, but for now plenty of us still use a computer. WhatsApp has finally conceded that point, releasing its very first desktop app.

You’ve been able to use WhatsApp in a browser window for a while now, but it’s a slightly frustrating experience that requires you to link the session to your phone using a QR code. The new app—available for Windows and OS X—just sits on your computer like any other piece of software. It mirrors the messaging on your phone, so it shouldn’t get confusing. And, honestly, there’s not much more to say other than: Maybe go download it?
