As expected, WhatsApp has launched the desktop app for both Mac and Windows. To (or “intending to”) making sure the messaging app continues to be a hot favorite among users, the Facebook-owned app has ensured that users can use it with more flare as well as convenience like never before.
If WhatsApp Web was a smart beginning, the desktop app is a highly appreciable way forward-perfectly in sync with the demand.
Just like WhatsApp Web, the desktop client is an excellent extension of your phone as it mirrors messages and conversations from your mobile devices. It is compatible with Windows 8+ and OS X 10.9+ and synced with WhatsApp on your iPhone or iPad.
Since it natively runs on the desktop, you have the support for better keyboard shortcuts and desktop notifications.

Step #3. Next up, you need to launch WhatsApp on iPhone.

That's all folks. Enjoy using the WhatsApp app on your Mac/Windows PC.
