Everyone knows the basics of WhatsApp at this point. They don't know that WhatsApp is not only compatible with Android phones and iPhones but also can be downloaded to a computer to allow you to use it from your desktop using its official app without the need for third-party development.
The company that is Facebook fulfilled the requirements of its customers who wanted to be able chat on their computer just as other alternatives to WhatsApp allow them to do before, such as Telegram, LINE, and Facebook Messenger. WhatsApp Messenger can be used on computers to perform the exact same functions as we would do from our phones.
Are you familiar with WhatsApp Web? This is the browser version of WhatsApp. This is very similar. The online version works from Chrome and Firefox.

It's a web browser that is dedicated to chat programs.
Your contacts as well as conversations on your computer will still be available just like your phone. This allows you to continue conversations you have left while you are on standby. Only problem: you will need your phone turned on, and an active data plan.

It's a straightforward export of the app onto your desktop. You won't be able with your girlfriend or boyfriend, or your friend chatting... Stop trying to spy on other people.
