How Do I Install WhatsApp on My Laptop?

Installing WhatsApp on your laptop is a great way to stay connected with friends, family and colleagues without having to rely on your smartphone. Thankfully, it is possible to install WhatsApp on your laptop without much effort.

If you use a Windows laptop, you can install the WhatsApp Desktop App available for Windows 8 and higher. All you need to do is visit the Microsoft Store and search for “WhatsApp”.

Once you find the app, click “Get” to begin downloading it. Once the download has been completed, open the app and enter your phone number in order to activate it. Once successfully activated, you can start using WhatsApp on your laptop just like you would do on your smartphone.

For MacOS users, you will need to download the WhatsApp Desktop App from their official website. You will first need to download BlueStacks (an Android emulator) from their official website in order for WhatsApp Desktop App to work on MacOS.

Once BlueStacks has been installed, open it and search for “WhatsApp” in Google Play Store (which will be available inside BlueStacks). When you find the app, click “Install” and then follow instructions provided by BlueStacks in order to finish installation process.


Installing WhatsApp on your laptop is a simple process that requires only a few minutes of your time. Windows users can simply install the app from Microsoft Store while MacOS users will need additional software like BlueStacks in order for WhatsApp Desktop App to work.
