WhatsApp for PC
Windows 8 Windows 10 - English

WhatsApp for Chrome works very well. It has been a great way of uniting all my communication and having everything on my laptop. It also prevents me from reaching into my pocket and wasting time on my phone (social media etc). All my contacts are in one place and I'm no longer worried about missing an important message while working.
