Whatsapp offers an easy and fast communication with friends and family through it's outstanding chatting features and almost for free or let say $99 for one whole year but the problem is that whatsapp only works for some specified mobile devices but the Good news is that you can as well use whatsapp on your windows pc computers and no longer only on mobile phones, with help of BlueStacks App Player which helps you to install whatsapp on your windows computer easily.

How to Download and install whatsapp on your Computers:
To get WhatsApp on your computer you first need to download and install BlueStacks App Player HERE. This is a free program that emulates Android applications on your computer. You can use it to run many Android apps and games through a windowed interface on your computer. Don't worry, it's very easy to use, as you'll see.

The next thing you'll need is a mobile phone number. This is used to verify your account and the app looks at your mobile phone contacts to find out those of your friends and families that are using WhatsApp.

NOTE: If you already have WhatsApp installed on your phone it won't work, since you can only run one instance of the app per phone number so this will mostly favour those who don't have compatible mobile phone that can run whatsapp
