Sure the app is a direct clone of the web-based chat client which launched just over a year ago, but WhatsApp has stated that the PC and Mac apps are merely an “extension of your phone”. You can head over to the WhatsApp website and select Windows or Mac, which will then trigger the download. Simply install it, and scan the QR code using your device. You will then be good to go.

Keep in mind that you will still need a phone with WhatsApp installed to use this app as it is not a standalone platform in which you can register a new number on. Chats are then synced instantly between your phone and the app.
