Many people wonder if you can download and install WhatsApp on a PC, computer, tablet, iPad, iPod, et cetera…
On January 21, 2015, WhatsApp launched the web version “WhatsApp Web“. This allows you to use WhatsApp on your PC, laptop or tablet. WhatsApp Web is available for iOS (iPhone), Android, Windows Phone, Nokia S40 EVO, BlackBerry and BB10 phones.
WhatsApp Desktop app
As per May 11, 2016, it is also possible to download and install WhatsApp on desktop as a desktop app. For this you need Windows 8+ or Mac OS 10.9+. You can download the program here. The desktop app works the same as WhatsApp Web.
Other options are unofficial
Third parties also offer WhatsApp for unsupported devices. In some cases, these are illegal applications that also abuse WhatsApp’s brand. It is up to you to judge whether you trust these parties. Also the use of things like Android Emulator is at your own risk. If something goes wrong with your WhatsApp account or device, it’s your own risk. If you frequently switch your WhatsApp account between different devices, you may be blocked by WhatsApp.
