whatsapp messenger 300x300 How to Install Whatsapp on PC

Looking for Mac guide? its here

On one of my previous guide I have explained you guys how to install and setup whatsapp on pc by using an android emulator called youwave. That article seems very popular and read by more than 500 people daily on this blog.

However there is one constrain on that method. It is that youwave is a commercial software and the free version only lasts for 7 days as I explained there. But you could always uninstall and reinstall after 7 days to get it working for 7 days more.

But now there is this software called bluestacks app player. Which emulates android apps better than youwave and most of all its free.

  • Download and install bluestacks app player

Download ans install bluestacks app player from here . It is a web installer so it requires internet to fetch the files and install.

  • Install whatsapp inside bluestacks

This process is very easy and self understandable. Navigate to “Social” tab inside the window and you will find whatsapp. click install button
