Hello,
Welcome to Kioskea Forum

To install Whatsapp on a Macbook Air, or Macbook Pro, the (minimum) system requirement to be met is: intel osx 10.6 or later. But because Whatsapp cannot be installed directly on your Mac, you will need to download a specific software that enables an Android emulator on MAC (yes, I know it sounds weird installing Android on a MAC !). This emulator is called "Bluestacks" and is available at http://www.bluestacks.com/ . After downloading and installing it you'll need to verify your phone number and complete the activation process for Whatsappas exactly as you would do on your iPhone or Smartphone. Another (simpler) alternative is to install Chrome Browser for MAC and then use the new Whatsapp Web online service which has been released recently. It works straight out of the box, effortlessly and without having to install any additional software (such as Bluestacks). That's it. Now you are ready and can fully enjoy Whatsapp on your new Macbook Pro / Air !

Please inform us when the issue is resolved. Thank you.

Hi there I already tried the whole google chrome and blue stacks option and couldn't get it to load. However by mistake I realised tonight if from whatsapp on your iPhone (I have the 6), go to settings you'll notice a 'Whatsapp web' option. Press the option and follow the instructions to open up web.whatsapp and scan the code and your good to go!! I do still have google chrome and blue stacks installed on my laptop but didn't need to open either of them to do this. If how I did it doesn't work and you don't have google chrome and blue stacks on your Mac, maybe you do need them installed t be able to do it. Good luck
