These days, everybody heard about Whatsapp and its multiple benefits and features. The service has gathered more than 250 million active users and their number increases day by day. As most of you already know, Whatsapp is totally free to use but it requires an internet connection in order to send and receive messages. This is the only cost that Whatsapp will ask for.
With Whatsapp, users will be able to keep in touch with their friends from other countries, running on different carriers, and everything is free of charge. Within the first launch of Whatsapp, users will be required to provide a valid phone number that will be linked to their Gmail account in order to sync all contacts. Now, the good part is that the service can be used on a desktop computer. Whatsapp on PC is now possible with the help of Bluestacks.
The emulator’s job is to render access to all those great applications and tweaks, which are mostly meant for mobile devices. Now, with Bluestacks, you can download Whatsapp on PC, in less than 10 minutes and use it, as you use the mobile version. Everything is that simple as it might appear. However, in order to be able to use the service on a desktop computer, you need to download the emulator first.
Next, with the emulator installed and ready to be used on your computer, you can easily search for Whatsapp. Using the search bar, type down Whatsapp and search for the messaging service. Bluestacks will render you a couple of results, and you will have to choose the first one, since it is provided by Google Play store. The rest of the results are provided by other third-party stores.
Click on the install button and the emulator will download Whatsapp on PC and install the service on your Windows-based computer. Wait a couple of minutes until the service is installed and run it through Bluestacks. Keep in mind to always do this step, because it is the only way in which you can use Whatsapp on PC. Next, you will be required to configure the service.
For this, you will be required to provide a phone number. The number will put you in touch with your contacts, those saved on the respective SIM card. In order to sync contacts, you will have to link to your Gmail account. In what concerns the phone number, you need to provide a running number because Whatsapp will send you a verification code. That is all. You can now use Whatsapp on PC as you use it on your smartphone.
