Whatsapp has followed in its parent company’s footsteps by launching a native app for desktop. Something tell us you’ll get more in trouble at work than appreciated by your friends #softwaremagic
The app is available for Windows and Mac, but you have to be in the possession of a computer with MacOS X 10.9, Windows 8, or higher to make it work. Once you install it, you will need to scan a QR code using the app from your smartphone; if you get lost, simply go to “Settings” > “WhatsApp Web”. After authentication, expect to see all your phone messages synced and receive the same benefits you have on your mobile device: notifications, desktop shortcuts, voice dictation, etc.
WhatsApp already counts more than 1 billion monthly active users, but we suspect it wouldn’t hurt them to extend their client base through word of mouth – meaning silent nudges to your colleagues.
What do you think – will you risk being interrupted by Whatsapp in the middle of an Excel or call?
