How to Use WhatsApp on Your Computer

WhatsApp is available for a variety of mobile devices including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Nokia, Windows phones, and Apple Watch. There's a free web client that makes it possible to access the WhatsApp interface on a computer from a web browser. There's also a standalone WhatsApp desktop client for Windows and Mac.


WhatsApp Web Vs. WhatsApp Desktop


WhatsApp Desktop is a robust program made for users accustomed to using WhatsApp. It supports keyboard shortcuts while chatting, and notifications can be sent directly to your desktop.

WhatsApp Web is easier if you're new to the program. All you have to do is log in to the WhatsApp website from any browser. Your messages instantly appear no matter which computer you use, where it is, and whether it's public or private. Both versions of WhatsApp let you send pictures and other types of files just like the mobile version.


How to Use WhatsApp From a Computer

If you don't have the mobile app, download it on your phone before setting up WhatsApp on your computer. Once you've done that, visit WhatsApp Web, or download the desktop program from the WhatsApp download page. In the desktop version, select the download link that corresponds with your computer operating system (Windows or Mac).

Once opened, the process for setting up the WhatsApp desktop program and web client interface is the same:


  1. Open WhatsApp on your phone.
  2. Tap the Chats tab, then tap the three vertical dots to open a drop-down menu.
  3. Tap WhatsApp Web.
  4. Hold your phone up to the computer screen to scan the QR Code displayed on the desktop or web client.
  5. The WhatsApp client opens immediately and shows the messages you have on your phone. Close WhatsApp on your phone and use it from your computer.
