Recent studies show that WhatsApp is the world’s most used messaging app, offering advanced end to end encryption, reliability and an extremely simple and fast to use smartphone app, backed up by an even better web app.
Recently, a report revealed that WhatsApp, the world famous messaging app owned by Facebook will take legal actions against individuals or companies which used the app against the agreed terms and conditions. While it is uncertain what this means, WhatsApp announced that those who misused their app by sending bulk or automated messages will face legal consequences.
WhatsApp Web is a complementary website for the smartphone WhatsApp application available since January 2015, and lots of people use it daily thanks to its simplicity in use: just open a browser, go to the website and link your smartphone with your computer.
However, lots of people might be surprised to learn that there is an actual desktop app for WhatsApp! It’s even simpler to use and can launch as soon as your computer starts.
If you want to install this app for Windows or MacOS, go to www.whatsapp.com/download and get it.
Desktop app versus Browser experience
One of the core differences between the desktop WhatsApp and the browser version is the fact that WhatsApp web allows users to use keyboard shortcuts, insert emojis and send audio files.
However, the main reason people might pick WhatsApp web over the Desktop app is the fact that a download is not needed in order to use the service, therefore saving a bit of time for those who happen to be in a hurry.
