Install WhatsApp in Windows:

  • There are full instructions on the WhatsApp mobile version as to how to scan OR code. Once it is successfully recognized , the PC version will automatically get loaded. Complete ith your account information and contacts.

Installing WhatsApp in Mac:

Installing WhatsApp onto a Mac is done similarly to the windows version. To begin with, ensure you have a relevant permission to be able to install programs to the Mac and have your mobile device handy with the WhatsApp app already installed.

  • From the dock, click on Safari to open the WhatsApp downloads. Click on the green button to the right-hand side of the screen labeled Download, for macOS to start the download process.
  • Once the WhatsApp.dmg file is downloaded, it will appear in the Downloads folder. Expand downloads and click on the file to start the installation. After a short time, you’ll be presented with the WhatsApp Installer windows. Simply drag the WhatsApp icon over to the Application folder icon.
  • Double-click the WhatsApp icon in the installer window and click Open in the confirmation box. Just like the windows desktop installation, the WhatsApp window will display a QR code which you can scan with WhatsApp on your mobile device.
  • Once you’ve scanned on the QR code, the Mac desktop WhatsApp synchronizes with the WhatsApp account you’ve created on the mobile device. You will be able to view any contacts and conversations you have started.
