How to download WhatsApp on Computer/Laptop – Windows 7/8/10, Mac – [Bluestacks Method]

Many people have been searching about how to download WhatsApp on Computer/Laptop and finally a simple procedure is written below for installing Whatsapp on your Windows Os and Mac Os of your Pc/Laptop.

WhatsApp is the most famous mobile messenger app of having amazing features like text messages, voice messages, images, videos, smileys, file sharings etc.

 Do you know this?

Earlier, WhatsApp was officially released for only Smartphones of Android, BlackBerry OS, Apple iOS, Symbian, Windows Phone etc but not for Computer/Laptop. But later in 2015, for Computer/Laptop, WhatsApp has released a feature called ‘WhatsApp Web‘ which we use on browser and later on May 11, 2016, for same Computer/Laptop, Whatsapp has officially released the desktop app (messenger)!

So now we have total 4 methods to use Whatsapp,


Mobile Phone

Using Whatsapp on mobile phone [normal method]


Web Browser

Using Whatsapp on computer/laptop web browser [Google chrome] - Click Here


Official Desktop Messenger

Using Whatsapp on computer/laptop by official desktop app - Click Here


Bluestacks (3rd party software)

Using Whatsapp on computer/laptop by using a software - Bluestacks [the present post!]

Now you might get confused about which method should I follow as there are total 3 methods for using Whatsapp on computer/laptop! 😀

Don't worry! I'm simplifying all the differences between the 3 methods, and now you will get an idea about which one you should use and which is best one for you!

  • web browser
  • Desktop Messenger App
  • bluestacks software
  • Bluestacks is a software which allows us to run Android apps on Computer!
  • By using this bluestacks, you can create/run a whatsapp account
  • You cannot use a same Whatsapp number on your mobile and computer bluestacks at a time. Those who don’t have smartphones to use WhatsApp on mobile, they can download this bluestacks software and can use Whatsapp on your computer.
  • In this post, I've explained you about this method, so check below!

In this post, I'll discuss the 4th method - Installing WhatsApp on your Computer/Laptop of Windows 7/8/10 or Mac by using Bluestacks Software!

Ok, in general, there are many softwares on the internet which will help us to run android apps on our Pc/Laptop, but the best one is Bluestacks. So in this post we are using Bluestacks software for installing WhatsApp on Pc/Laptop.

Note: Bluestacks is only supported on Pc/Laptop having graphic memory or graphic card. If your PC don't have a graphic card, then don't worry, I'm giving an alternative link to download.

Steps for Installing WhatsApp on your Computer/Laptop - Windows 7/8/10 or Mac:

Step 1:

  • If you don't have a graphic card on your Pc, then download bluestacks by clicking here.

  •  After the download of bluestacks completes, install it on your Pc/Laptop. Installation may take some time like 3-5 minutes.

  • After successful installation of bluestacks, we will follow one simple method to install Whatsapp on our bluestacks software

Open your bluestacks and you will see an option 'App Search' or a small Search Icon on the top right corner. So now type Whatsapp in the search box and download it.

How to use-install-download Whatsapp on Computer or Laptop - Windows 7/8 and Mac

Ok, guys, now I'm about to Divide our "2nd Step" into two cases,

  • 2A) Activating the OLD WhatsApp account number on your Computer/Laptop which you used on Mobile so far! [It means, you're no longer going to the use that whatsapp number on your mobile, as I told you that we cannot use a same whatsapp number at a time on Mobile & Computer BLUESTACKS
  • 2B) Activating the NEW WhatsApp account number on your Computer/Laptop which you are not using on Mobile!

So check the below methods as per your own Case!

Step 2: Activating WhatsApp on your Pc/Laptop

  • After your download of Whatsapp completes, install it.

  •  After Installing Whatsapp then it will ask you to enter your Mobile number for which you want to use your Whatsapp

CASE: 2A) Activating the OLD Whatsapp Account Number

If you decide to stop using the OLD Whatsapp account No in your smart phone, and you wanna use the same Old Whatsapp No on PC now, 

  • You can restore the contacts, chats, media by using the Backup Option which will ask to restore Backup when you verify the mobile number on PC after Whastapp installation in Bluestacks!

So if you have confirmed to use the same OLD Whatsapp No of mobile on PC now, then immediately take Backup of chats in your mobile first by going to "Chats" option in "Settings" of your Whatsapp account (so that you won't miss any old, latest chats while using on PC) and then only start installing Bluestacks on your Computer!

  • Now verify your Mobile number by Sms or call as the same procedure which we do normally for installing Whatsapp on mobile

  • Enter Verification code and now Your Whatsapp is successfully activated on your Computer/Laptop. 🙂

That's it!  Now Enjoy! 🙂

CASE: 2B) Activating the NEW Whatsapp Account Number (which you won't use on Mobile!)

  •  After Installing Whatsapp, then it will ask you to enter your Mobile number for which you want to use your Whatsapp on Computer

  • Now it's time for you to verify your Mobile number by Sms or call as the same procedure which we do for installing Whatsapp on mobile

  • Enter Verification code and now Your Whatsapp is successfully activated on your Computer/Laptop

  • Now open Whatsapp in your bluestacks and open Contacts,
Steps for Installing WhatsApp on your Computer/Laptop of Windows 7/8 or Mac

and manually enter your friend contact nos who are using WhatsApp.


Have Fun – Chatting – Voice messages and much more on your Pc/laptop`s Whatsapp. 😀

One thing you should make a note for this bluestacks method is, you cannot use a same Whatsapp number on your mobile and computer at a time. Those who don't have smartphones to use WhatsApp on mobile, they can download this computer bluestacks software and can use Whatsapp on your computer.

    • Avinash S says:

      Look, they don’t know that you are using whatsapp on laptop. Whatever version (Pc or Cell) we use, they can simply add you in groups if you are in your friends whatsapp contacts. Everything is same like the mobile whatsapp!

      If you have a smartphone and want to use the same Whatsapp account on your Computer/Laptop, then follow this procedure >> HOW TO USE WHATSAPP ON YOUR PC/LAPTOP/TABLET – WEB BROWSER.

    • Avinash S says:

      As you are the owner, simply delete your WhatsApp account from your cell (Temporarily) and after the problem is solved, again create your account back on your cell.

      By deleting your WhatsApp account, she can’t login on her laptop. So I hope you can understand my logic!! 😀

    Hello, so my problem is that my phone just got stolen yesterday and though I have been able to localize it obviously the thieves have turned it off again… Now i need whatsapp quite a lot for my work and just started googling the theme of laptop use. Is it possible to install it in some way without the verification code? Or can I receive the verification code some other way? Because I wont be able to access my phone now… Thanks a lot!

    • Avinash S says:

      I guess, you can’t do the verification without having the sim. So my advice is, go to your network customer office and block the old sim and take a new sim and now verify the sim!!

  • aizaz says:

    hi. informative post. got just one question: i have whatsapp running on my mobile…what happens if i install whatsapp through bluestacks on my laptop and give the same mobile number…will i receive the messages on my mobile AND laptop simultaneously??

      No, we cannot use a same WhatsApp account on lappy, cell at a time. You can delete ur account in cell and then you can use in lappy.

    I have lost my phone so for temporary use I thot of installing whatsapp on my laptop but then I realised how will I manage with d confirmation call or msg the one that is required for installation?? pls suggest me if there is any other way for this

    • Avinash says:

      So did you took new sim of the old no? If so, then you can confirm it in whatsspp by placing the sim in any device at time of verification. This is the only way.

      Or else, use some other no to use WhatsApp and then add your required contacts in that account to chat.

      Same as how we do in mobile, just copy text which you want from laptop and in whatsapp, press the mouse button for a sec till 'Paste' option appears.

    • Anonymous says:

      Do you press the right or left mouse?, done both for few secs but nothing comes up

      Left button. The paste option appears only when you previously copied any text in lappy.

    • Avinash says:

      Yes, for that particular minute when you install, whatsapp will verify the mobile no which you gave. It may send sms to that sim, so you need to type that sms code in your pc to verify that the no which you gave is your's only.

    Hello Avinash the problem im facing is im not able to add my lapi pics to watsap gallery. Even i downloaded file manager and OI file manage bt none is working..
    The other problem is im not able to update graphic card.The process ws showing almost completed bt never finished . Due to this i had to terminate the process.
    Please Guide.. Thanks in Advance 🙂

    • Avinash says:

      1) Just open any person`s message window in whatsapp and then drag the pics from your local disk folder to that whatsapp message window. Then pics will be saved and now go to profile picture and you can see all saved pictures category.

      2) Follow this method to update your graphic card > http://www.wikihow.com/Update-Your-Video-Card-Drivers-on-Windows-7

      or if still problem occurs, and if you want to use bluestacks-whatsapp, then uninstall that bluestacks in your pc completely, restart ur pc and then download bluestacks by going here >> http://goo.gl/0CNJeD and later tell me what happened!!

      If you have any doubt, you can leave a msg to my fb id >> https://www.facebook.com/avinash.76

    yeah true….but he dont knw that person not even his contact no. … is there any possibility that whatsapp have the same confirmation code everytime…if it is possible then in that case he can see my chat by stealing my confrmation code from my mobile no. ???

    • Avinash says:

      no, whatsapp sends different codes. Iven though if he stole ur confirmation code for 1 time, the next time when he logins into ur accnt, whatsapp account will get temporarily locked coz no 2 devices can use a same no and whatsapp will again send a new confrmt code to unlock tht account.

      Maybe, he has stolen ur frnds contact no`s and checking their status as it is possible to check status of any person if we have their mobile no.

  • Anonymous says:

    but someone is using my no. on pc whatsapp because he is telling me the status of people who are in my contact…i dont knw whats happening….can he read my chat???

    • Avinash says:

      Its not possible. whatsapp will ask for verification if a same no is used on multiple devices- pc and mobile. whatsapp will send a verfctn code to that mobile no.

      You said that " he is telling me the status of people who are in my contact… " , but who knows that whether he got the contact no from somewhere else and checking their status? Its possible to see status of any person if we have their mobile no with us.
