WhatsApp made the announcement on their blog earlier today. The desktopversion is actually a web version and not an actual desktop native application.After months of denying any plans of launching a version for PCs, WhatsApp today announced a web client that will enable users to use the world’s most popular mobile IM client on their PC and Macs. Screenshots of the app were leaked yesterday.
Officially from Whatsapp Blog :
To connect your web browser to your WhatsApp client, simply open https://web.whatsapp.com in your Google Chrome browser. You will see a QR code — scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and you’re ready to go. You have now paired WhatsApp on your phone with the WhatsApp web client. Your phone needs to stay connected to the internet for our web client to work, and please make sure to install the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone. Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations.
