Whatsapp the top messaging app, which recently revealed it has more than 1bn users and launched an end-to-end encryption feature, is now enabling users to stay in touch with their groups of friends on their computers as well as their phones.
Just like WhatsApp Web, the new desktop app lets you message with friends and family while your phone stays in your pocket.
The new desktop app is available for Windows 8+ and Mac OS 10.9+ and is synced with WhatsApp on your mobile device. Because the app runs natively on your desktop, you’ll have support for native desktop notifications, better keyboard shortcuts, and more.
After installing the app, you’ll have to scan a QR code using the WhatsApp app on your mobile device — the feature will be under “Settings” > “WhatsApp Web”. If the QR code is recognized, you’ll be authenticated on the desktop. WhatsApp for desktop connects to your phone to sync message.
