WhatsApp for PC with Windows XP Vista or 7

A long time ago we posted a tutorial on how to download WhatsApp for PC but it was not a success because we were lazy and did not accompany it with a video tutorial. Moreover, the details were missing to actually get it working. Thus, we have decided to do a better tutorial with step by step video tutorial on how to download Whatsapp for Windows as well as Mac working.

Whatsapp is a cross platform text messaging app for smartphones. It is an amazing app by WhatsApp Inc. and it is so famous that about 1 Billion messages are transferred over it every day (read more here). There are about 7 Billion people on this earth, which means almost 1 of 7 people on average sends a message using WhatsApp everyday. This is pretty neat for an app which does not even support calling yet. What is even neat is that we have found a brand new method to get Whatsapp for PC be it a Windows based laptop or even a Mac.

WhatsApp for PC step-by-step

In order to get WhatsApp on PC you need to follow a few steps. Please follow all of the steps in order – don’t jump to the download steps before you PC/Mac is ready for the download. This will make sure that you do not run into issues later on and have a smooth download process. You will also be able to follow this tutorial to download other apps such as WeChat for PC and games such as Temple run for PC and then use the same tips to get WhatsApp for PC in no time.

Watch this video tutorial to see the process end-to-end.

If you have already followed any of our tutorials such as Subway Surfers for PC  or Viber for PC then you can jump to the download step straight away. Otherwise follow along from the very beginning of this WhatsApp for PC tutorial without skipping any step:

  1. In case something goes wrong, we ask you to Install a backup software and try backing up your files. If it works fine then you are good.
  2. Download Android Emulator from their website.
  3. Install the Android emulator and run it (see video for how it should look like).
  4. Steps 5 to 7 are required for Mac laptops Only. If you have a PC simply search for WhatsApp in Bluestacks, install it, and go to step 9. Open the Twitter App in the android emulator as we need a way to open the browser inside the emulator.
  5. Click on one of the two hyperlinks and it will let you go to a browser.
  6. Visit this page at our website by typing in the URL https://appforpcs.com in your browser.
  7. Come to the page for WhatsApp for PC (this page) and download the file from this link
  8. Open this file and it will install WhatsApp for PC for you to play with. Set it up as you would on your Android smartphone and you will have what you need to be in touch with your friends.

Let us know if you have issues or if you need help with any of the steps above. Similar to WhatsApp for PC, our website App for PCs has tutorials for a list of numerous other apps. If you want to contribute to our existing list, please leave a comment below.

    hey buddy, iam unable to install bluestack android emulator on my window 7 because everytime i try to do so it says that this software cannot be run directly launching the MSI package i need to run from setup.exe,'(NULL)’, ‘(NULL)’ help me out man

  19. BONGINKOSI

    hey peiple.

  20. ste

    I would like to use WhatsApp. I have three questions:

    I followed the first step in the instructions and downloaded myPC backup. The second instruction (in your list) says “install the software” — I assume this means the backup software, so I installed that. Then your second instruction says “try making a test call.” I’m not sure what that means. I don’t see a feature in myPC backup that makes calls, so how do I make a test call?

    Also, your video tutorial stops at the point where we are supposed to enter a phone number on our pc. The narrator says something about not wanting to use his actual phone number, and the video ends. He implies there will be another video with the rest, but I don’t see another video. So if I get to that step, I’m not sure what to do. And Ruan comments above that if I use my actual cell phone number, I will get kicked off WhatsApp on my cell phone. Is that correct?

    1. Muke

      Hi Ste,

      It’s not meant to “make a test call” but try backing up your files. Thank you for letting us know.

    I have installed WhatsApp using BlueStacks but When i click on Tell a Friend it says that Sorry, you may not have an email client on this phone. How can i use WhatsApp?

    1. Muke

      Hi Prasahant,

      What you need to do is reinstall WhatsApp and get your account activated again. Then make sure you have internet connection and you will have it working fine.

  53. Darrel

    Helllo guyz some1 plz help me, i hav done everything as in dis site,but itz showing network not available,even though my internet is connected to pc

    1. Muke

      Hi Darrel,

      That error is usually due to the internet connection not being recognized by either Whatsapp on PC or the emulator. What you would like to do is stop any firewall or antivirus software that you may have and restart bluestacks. It will most probably work. HTH.

      Hi Shashank,

      In order to back up messages and contents you need to access a special folder on your PC. This is a good question and I am sure a lot of people have this issue. We will write a detailed blog post on it soon. Please subscribe to our blog.
