The mobile app set communication through your mobile phone number. It works on internet connection and offer you unlimited free messaging support. But what if you have a option to install this application on your PC. Typing on it will be much more comfortable. In this article I am going to target a set of few ways through which you can install WhatsApp in your PC. This will be more suitable for those who want to use it on a PC. So lets move ahead with a method of installing WhatsApp on PC.

    Method 1 : Bluestack

    The first method is by using a Android Emulator. We are going to run a Android version of WhatsApp on our pc. To run this we need android environment. A emulator allows you to run the full operating system on your pc without messing with installation. You just have to install the software and you can freely work on the virtual environment. The most popular and stable application available for the same is BlueStack. This software works on Windows, and help you to run all Android apps easily on your pc.

    Method 3: Android Emulator

    Android Emulator is a wise choice for developers who want to test and run many android applications. Through this emulator you can run all Android apps on your pc. Here Youwave is paid. So this one is a free alternative. You can find the emulator in Android SDK. You can download this from web and install it in your pc. Android Emulator works fine with almost all applications. This process is bit complicated but effective.


    • Download and Install Android Emulator in your PC.

    • Open Android SDK Manager. In that click on Repository. Then check SDK Platform Android 2.3.3 API 10.

    • Then you can go ahead with installation of Android Packages.

    • This will help you to create Virtual Device. Here you have to select the Android Target depending on your version.

    • Select the files who’s size is around 512MB and click on Create AVD.

    • Now you have to select the virtual machine you want to start.

    Now there is no need of getting stuck with all those Android Emulator in order to run WhatsApp on your windows computer. There is an unofficial version available, called Wassapp which is an exe installer and works exactly like whatsapp. You can download wassapp from here.

    Another good method is by running DuOS. You can install your favorite android applications including Whatsapp on DuOS. Compare to other android emulators I've tried, I think DuOS has better performance, it brings the Native Android Experience to Windows devices.
