WhatsApp for the desktop? Well...

WhatsApp is a free PC and Mac version of the popular messaging app.

The desktop edition isn't designed to be used separately. You can't install the program just on a couple of PCs, for instance-- it's purely an extension of your mobile app, a native version of WhatsApp Web.

This does at least make setup very easy, because there's almost nothing to do. Launch WhatsApp Desktop, scan the QR code it displays with your mobile (Settings > WhatsApp Web menu), and the program will automatically sync your contacts and settings.

A few seconds later your current chats are displayed, and you're able to carry on the conversations as usual.

Nothing too revolutionary here, then, but there's still plenty to like: the app integrates properly with your operating system, launches when your system starts, displays native notifications, supports all the features you need - one-to-one and group chats, photo and video sharing, location sharing - and is generally simple and straightforward to use.

Verdict:

WhatApp Desktop doesn't provide anything new - it's really just a front end for WhatsApp Web - but the improved keyboard shortcuts and native desktop notifications do make for a better messaging experience. Take a look.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.30

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.30 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
