How to run WhatsApp Messenger on Computer


WhatsApp Messenger
Having WhatsApp Messenger on your smartphone is not enough for you? WhatsApp for PC might be a welcome feature to always stay in touch with your friends, but WhatsApp is currently available for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Nokia Symbian, Nokia S40 and Windows Phone. If you have followed some of my blog posts about Android-x86 project development on how to run Android on computer, it instantly raised a question in mind is "Can we run WhatsApp on Android-x86 even with the limitation of hardware compatibility?". My answer is "No, but it's possible by tricking it" because WhatsApp supports phones only, no tablets.

Instead of finding a solution on how to trick WhatsApp by telling our Android-x86 computer is a "phone", there is another (better) way to run Android app on Windows or Macintosh which is using BlueStacks App Player. In case you've never heard of it, BlueStacks app player allows us to run Android apps on Windows/Mac system without any modifications needed. It's currently in Beta but 400,000 Android apps will be available very soon when Microsoft Windows 8 is released in October 2012 and still adding more apps on Mac. Following below is to show you how to run WhatsApp Messenger on PC:

What you'll need:


Steps:

  1. Install BlueStacks.
  2. Start BlueStacks.
  3. Click 'Messaging', then 'WhatsApp' to install.
  4. BlueStacks - WhatsApp Messenger Installation
  5. After WhatsApp is installed, open it and click 'Agree and Continue'.
  6. Enter your country and phone number for verification.
  7. BlueStacks - WhatsApp phone number verification
  8. Activate WhatsApp, by Entering the verification code which you received by SMS.
  9. Verified and you can now chat with your friends via WhatsApp on computer.
