Good news for Mac and Windows users as Social networking application WhatsApp had launched its desktop client. It will be available for download at the official website of the company. The Facebook-owned Application is extending its base at a good pace by releasing continuous updates.
Last year it had launched the voice call feature which received a positive response from all the users around the globe. There are speculations that the instant messaging service would be starting the video calling option and testing the same on the beta version of iPhone.
WhatsApp announced that their active users’ number rocketed from 700 million to 1 billion within one year. The messaging service also introduced end-to-end encryption which would secure the data exchanged between the users. No third party application, even WhatsApp can’t access or track the data such as messages, calls, videos and images.
Brian Acton, the founder of WhatsApp, opined that “building secure products makes for a safer world.”The inclusion of this security feature is also tempting others and it can be a huge selling point for the service.
The new desktop App would be featuring new options including all the current characteristics of the mobile client. For Mac users, it can be the best substitute to message for communicating with users of other platforms. Even though OS X is providing a text message forwarding service for communication with non-I Message users but a centralized service would be a better option.
The instant messaging service mobile version is available for IOS, Android and Windows users. The new web client of WhatsApp is available for both Mac’s OS X and Windows at the official website. After downloading the client on your desktop platform, synchronize it with the mobile app by the scanning the QR code on the desktop. This will enable the user to use the social networking application from the PC itself.
