And when we talk about the pros – the first thing that comes first in your mind is this is the easiest and superb awesome way to use WhatsApp in PC. Even children’s can do this. And if we talk about the cons -the only cons are the requirements that this method requires.

2) Install WhatsApp on PC Using BlueStacks Software As I have already told you I will reveal 3 methods for installing WhatsApp in PC, I’m starting this with the BlueStacks method which is one of the best methods for installing WhatsApp in PC. This is indeed one of the easiest methods among all three methods here. I just love this method. So let’s get started. As you know WhatsApp is an App designed for smart phones, and most of the apps that run on computers are designed for Computer they are created using specific computer sporting codes (basically they support computer).

So if you want to run a smartphone app (WhatsApp) in your PC, then you have to use a third party software. These kind of software’s is called Android Emulators. An android emulator is basically an app player which plays that smartphone app on your computer. And BlueStacks is the best among all the apps in this category. To install WhatsApp in your PC using BlueStacks Follow the Steps Below.

2) Whatsapp Download On PC using Bluestacks for Windows 8/10/8.1

  • Open BlueStacks and Change the Time if you see wrong time in BlueStacks home screen.

whatsapp in bluestacks Step 4:- Go to Search option and search for WhatsApp and Click on “Search Play for Whatsapp” otherwise you will get market not found error.

Step 5: Then you will see play store like in normal Android phones there Click on start download, now BlueStacks will download WhatsApp and it will be installed on your computer through BlueStacks.

Step 6:- After the Download and installation completes, you can Enjoy WhatsApp.

 Pros and Cons of  installing Whatsapp for PC using bluestacks Method:

The biggest advantage of using BlueStacks is – this is very easy, you don’t actually need many things, all you need is an internet connection and a computer (which you have, because you are reading it currently on my blog:).

But one thing that is bad about BlueStacks is – sometimes BlueStacks just don’t get installed in your PC.It’s not because of the internet speed that you have, but the graphic and other core part of the PC is responsible of the errors that we face when installing BlueStacks on PC. Most of the time these errors are seen on older machines.

So if you’re using a new computer, then don’t think about any issue regarding installing BlueStacks, it will be a smooth install. If you face any errors, then feel free to comment below, I will love to help.

So let’s jump into the next method.   So if you have completed reading the above two methods and still want to try something different then Check the last method in this list. I hope if you have still not find what you are looking for then you will find it now.

3) How to Use WhatsApp For PC Without Bluestacks?

The last method for installing WhatsApp on your Windows 8/8.1/7 PC which I recommend you is Using You Wave emulator. Just like BlueStacks YouWave does the same job, it plays the android app on your PC.

This method is recommended when you don’t want to use the WhatsApp web and at the same time BlueStacks is not working on your computer (and giving error while installing it on your computer). You can easily do the job with YouWave, so let’s jump into the step by step guide.

Steps to Follow to Download WhatsApp on PC using YouWave Android Emulator:

  • Step 1: Download YouWave from The Official Website. Link is given below.
  • Step 2: Install YouWave in Your computer
  • Step 3: After you Install YouWave, Open that you will see something like this
  • Step 4:- Click on view button which is located at the left side top. You will see a drop down menu there click on online content.

install whatsapp on laptop Step 5:- After clicking on online content you will get options like the below image there as you can expect click on WhatsApp. download whatsapp for pcStep 6:- Now you freely download WhatsApp for PC. Once clicking on WhatsApp wait for few seconds after that WhatsApp will be installed on your computer. So yes Now WhatsApp is on your PC, Start using it right away.

Pros and Cons of this Method:-

I will be talking about some basic pros and cons, because there are not many. Actually the main Advantage of this method is – YouWave doesn’t give any errors and you can install YouWave in pretty Much Every Computer. Also Size of YouWave is pretty low, so it saves your internet data. And if you talk about the cons of YouWave the main thing is – YouWave seems not that much exclusive and attractive. BlueStacks looks great when compared to YouWave.
