Although access to WhatsApp via your desktop has been available for some time (WhatsApp Web), now WhatsApp has released a separate desktop app. For Windows 8 and up, and Mac OS X 10.9 and up. Few visual changes. But it is a separate app (once known as “program”…) which will (hopefully) benefit both use and safety. You still need your smartphone to be able to use WhatsApp. And now let’s hope there will be additional options for commercial use.
