Whatsapp is one of the most popular cross platform mobile messenger app available in the market. Currently it is available for all major mobile platforms. If you don’t own a smart phone and you are missing out all the fun with your friends then here is a simple trick to use it on your PC.

  1. Currently Whatsapp is available for mobile operating systems only. So if you want to run it on your PC you will have to use an emulator. Here we will be using an Android emulator to run it.
  2. BlueStacks is a free Android emulator which can be used on Windows or Mac OS. You can download it from here.
  3. Once you have downloaded and installed the emulator run the program and click on  “Apps”.Running whatsapp on Windows 7 / PC

  5. Select Whatsapp and install.
  6. After installing Whatsapp enter your mobile number which is not associated to any other Whatsapp account.
  7. Now it will try to verify your mobile number but that won’t work. Wait for some time while it tries to send SMS for verification. After it fails it will give you an option to get the verification code over call. Select the “Call me” option. You will get a call from an international number. Enter the three digit code and you are done.
  8. You won’t be having any contacts initially. You can ask your friends to send you a Whatsapp message on your number or add your number to groups or you can manually add contacts.
  9.  Now to add contacts click on the pencil icon in the Whatsapp home screen -> Menu button ->  Contacts ->  Menu button -> Add new contact.
  10. Add the contact details there and click on done. Now click on the new contact. If that contact is registered on Whatsapp you will be able to send a message to that number.
