How to download WhatsApp for PC on Windows, Mac
WhatsApp is one of the most used messaging apps used around the world and the numbers are growing every day. Because of its user-friendly features and accessibility, the Facebook-owned messaging app now processes more than 65 billion messages per day. However, most of the users use it via their smartphones, but it is unknown to many that Whatsapp can be used on desktops and laptops.
The most engaging feature of Whatsapp is the group chat, where the user can share messages, photos, and videos with a number of people at once.

The messaging app boasts of end-to-end encryption, i.e. the messages and the call are all secured. Only the user and the person she/he is communicating to can read or listen to them. It also allows the users to sync the chats to their laptops and desktop. Let's have a look at how to do the same:
