How to use WhatsApp Messenger on PC Windows

Before you start, you will need to download the apk installer file, you can find download button on top of this page. Save it to easy-to-find location.

There are many good android emulators in market, the best one is LDPlayer, Andy, Bluestacks, Nox App player and mynamo. In this guide, we will tell you the method to download WhatsApp Messenger using LDPlayer, Bluestacks and Nox App player.

Download WhatsApp Messenger for PC with LDPlayer

  • Step 1: Download the LDPlayer software from the below link, if you haven’t installed it earlier – Download LDPlayer for PC
  • Step 2: Installation procedure is quite simple and straight-forward. After successful installation, open LDPlayer emulator.
  • Step 3: It may take some time to load the LDPlayer app initially. Once it is opened, you should be able to see the Home screen of LDPlayer.
  • Step 4: Google play store comes pre-installed in LDPlayer. On the home screen, find Playstore and double click on the icon to open it.
  • Step 5: Now search for the app you want to install on your PC. In our case search for WhatsApp Messenger to install on PC.
  • Step 6: Once you click on the Install button, WhatsApp Messenger will be installed automatically on LDPlayer. You can find the app under list of installed apps in LDPlayer.

Now you can just double click on the app icon in LDPlayer and start using WhatsApp Messenger app on your laptop. You can use the app the same way you use it on your Android or iOS smartphones.

Download WhatsApp Messenger for PC with Bluestacks

  • Firstly, You should install Bluestacks Software on your Computer or Laptop. (Note: Come back to this post once you installed Bluestacks correctly)
  • After Bluestacks, now, you must download .APK file of WhatsApp Messenger. Click here.
  • Open the Bluestacks App already installed on your PC/Laptop. In the left-hand corner toolbox, you will find an option of Add APK. Load the APK file using the option on the Bluestacks. Click on that.
  • It will ask about the location where you have kept the downloaded APK. In my case, I have kept it on Desktop, so I am selecting that.
  • It will now automatically install the application on Bluestacks. You will find the WhatsApp Messenger on applications tab on the main screen of the Bluestacks window.
  • Now, you are all set to use WhatsApp Messenger on PC. Here is the WhatsApp Messenger successfully running on my PC after installing and clicked on the app.

Now, we should discuss the installation of WhatsApp Messenger on PC using NOX App player. You can use this method if Bluestacks method is not working properly on your Laptop or Computer.

Download WhatsApp Messenger for PC with Nox App player

  • First of all, you must download Nox App player, click on the software to start installation on your Computer/Laptop.
  • Now, download APK file from here.
  • After installation, open the NOX player. In the right-hand side corner toolbox, you will find an option of ‘Add APK’. Click on that option.
  • Select Don’t show again and click on I know.
  • You have to choose the APK from the downloaded location. As I have saved it on the desktop, I choose from there. (If your downloaded file is in Downloads area, select the .APK from there itself)
  • Nox will automatically install the Application. Open it from the home screen of Nox app player.
  • You will then be asked about if you want to change your location from ‘Worldwide’ to any particular location. Initially, choose Later option.
  • Now, you are ready to use the App with some pre-existing website links embedded in the App.
  • Note: Use ESCAPE to come back to the home screen or else you can use the symbols to operate WhatsApp Messenger app on PC NOX app player.

Which Emulator Should I Use?

If you’re going to follow my recommendation then I suggest you go with NOX because it’s quite simple and easy to understand. You don’t have to panic yourself for anything it will teach after every step for once to guide about how this Emulator works.

If it didn’t work for you then you can search for its alternative android emulators, the best alternative of NOX is BlueStack. It is also good and worth to use only if NOX didn’t work for you.

Download WhatsApp Messenger App for PC without Bluestacks

Users who want to experience the available movies & TV without blustacks can use a new software called The ARC Welder.

  • So this software only runs through google chrome browser. If you don’t have it by default, please go ahead & download it.
  • Then search for Arc Welder chrome extension in the google chrome store and simply download it.
  • Now follow the same steps. Download WhatsApp Messenger apk file, and run it on arc welder.
  • Choose the option – full window or partial screen while testing.
  • You can start using the app on your PC with these steps.

With these steps, you can have WhatsApp Messenger on your PC after these two methods are implemented.

So this is how you can download or install WhatsApp Messenger for Pc. Hope you guys have enjoyed my work and don’t forget to share this method with your friends and loved ones. You can also try this procedure on your Mac if you’re looking for WhatsApp Messenger for Mac devices.

The description of WhatsApp Messenger

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

WHY USE WHATSAPP:

• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.

• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).

• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.

• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.

• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*

• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.

• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.

• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.

• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.

• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

Precise location (GPS and network-based):
  - Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.
