Undoubtedly, Whatsapp is one of the most popular instant messaging programs in the world. It is compatible with the most popular cell phone platforms, and now it is available also for PC and Mac OS.
To synchronize your phone with the desktop application, you need to open Whatsapp in your phone and scan the QR code that appears on your computer screen when opening the program. The program’s interface is divided into two lateral windows. On the left window, you will see your active chats. To select any of them, you can click on it and the chat will appear on the right window. To start a new chat, you can click on the "+" sign on the upper bar, and a new window will appear on the right panel, while your contacts will be shown at left. You can also modify your profile and other settings. Take into account that any change made in the desktop version will reflect on the phone version.

This application has many advantages. First, you don't need to stop working in your computer to answer a Whatsapp message on your phone. You only need to open Whatsapp's desktop version in a new window and chat directly from your computer. Also, it is easier to use a regular keyboard instead of the tiny keyboard of a cell phone. Another advantage is that you can send files, photos, videos, and so on, directly from your computer's hard drive.

In sum, if you use Whatsapp on your phone to keep in touch with your coworkers or loved ones, then you will find the desktop version of the program extremely useful.
