As you know, Whatsapp is among those apps, which need no further introduction to any users. With more than 400 million active users, I am sure that almost all of you know what I am talking about. The service became very famous two years ago, and these days, the number of registered members is increasing. However, the good thing is that we can share the same great features right on our desktop computers.

If you wish to use Whatsapp for PC, then, you need to know a couple of things first. It is important to note the fact that the service cannot be installed on a desktop computer, in the same way as you do on your Smartphone. First, you need to make sure that you have an emulator installed on your Windows-based computer. The emulator will play the Android role and it will allow you to get all those great mobile apps right on your computer.

With Whatsapp, you can send unlimited text messages to all those friends that are on your contact list. For example, you need to add a new contact in your list in order to send a message. But, if the respective contact has you in his list, then you can easily receive the message, without having to add a new contact.

Besides the possibility to communicate in a free manner, you also get to share media files such as photos, videos, or audio records. In the same time, when texting, you can make use of various interesting stickers or smiley icons, to make your conversations more interesting.

Before going any further, let me just tell you that Whatsapp for PC is not made available from their official source, and you will have to use a third-party app, called the Android emulator. Only in this way, you will be able to install any mobile application on a desktop-based computer. However, do not worry because there will be no harm done to your computer.

Let me just tell you a couple of Whatsapp’s features and options. First of all, its main strength is its large user base. You will find the maximum of your friends and relatives using the service at the moment you decided to become a member. Personally, at first, I was a little bit skeptical about the service, but once i installed it, I noticed that more than 40 of my contracts were already there. In addition, when we have a chance to communicate in a free manner, it is a pity not to take advantage of it.

With Whatsapp on PC, users are able to create groups of maximum 50 of their friends who share the same concerns, such as school or work colleagues. The user interface is very elegant and simple. You do not need a user guide to see how things work with Whatsapp. In addition, if you already used the service on a mobile device, the PC version is actually the same; so, you will not encounter any problems whatsoever.

Whatsapp Messenger has become one of the most used application at this point, and not speaking from a messaging-service point of view. Actually, the application has more than 400 million users, who use the service on a daily basis. Moreover, now, with the possibility to download Whatsapp on PC, their number increases day by day.

However, even with this impressive number, some people are not aware of its actual benefits. Besides the main feature, the one that allows users to connect to each other, in a free manner, Whatsapp on PC has plenty of other interesting options. Here, I want to show you some of the most important ones, those that are not immediately visible in the application.

For instance, I am sure that most users still do not know that they can send Whatsapp conversation history to anyone. In the case you want to prove something to someone, you can send the entire conversation from a Whatsapp contact to another via email. For this, just click on the Menu option in the conversation, go to More, and Select Email conversation, before entering the address you want to send to. In this way, you can send the whole text conversation, pictures, voice records, or even video clips.

In the same time, as another interesting feature, with Whatsapp on PC, you can easily, change the Whatsapp chat wallpaper. I am sure that at one point, you might feel bored about the background in the chat screen. You can choose a background to appear in the respective windows, by going to the Wallpaper option in the Chat menu. Here, you can select a picture of your cat, yourself, or one that it is available within the service.

Now, I want to tell you that you can actually save the photos you receive from your friends. I also know that some of you already know this thing, but you will be amazed by the number of people who still do not how to do this. When  a friend sends you various pictures, and you want to save them in your device, all you need to do is to tap on them and choose Save. You will be able to access them in the Whatsapp/Media/Whatsapp Images folder. Then, you can easily share them on various social networks; apply them as contact photos, and much more.

In the last part, because of the fact that now, you can easily install Whatsapp on PC, I want to tell you that you can create a backup for each conversation. If your Whatsapp conversations are important to you, it is a good idea to make backups to them so you will always have them saved in a safe place. For this, just head over to Settings choose Chat Preferences and click on the Chat history backup option.

As a mention, Whatsapp on PC is easy to install. The whole process takes only 10 minutes actually. However, you need to know that you cannot install Whatsapp on PC as a regular application. You need Bluestacks or any other Android emulator for this job. Fortunately, there are plenty of guides showing you how to do this is an easy way.
