WhatsApp Applications

Installing WhatsApp on Windows PC :

  1. We will be using the excellent BlueStacks android emulator to get this working, so go ahead and install BlueStacks.
  2. Launch BlueStacks and you should see the WhatsApp application in it's AppStore, install it.
  3. WhatsApp in store
    install WhatsApp
  4. Launch WhatsApp and go ahead with registration using a working phone number. Since, we are not using a real network connected android device the automated SMS verification will not work; use the phone call verification after waiting for SMS timer to finish..
  5. verify
    WhatsApp registration
