Desktop client for WhatsApp Messenger.

Overview

WhatsApp is the desktop client for WhatsApp Messenger, a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone, and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

I like the Desktop WhatsApp very much, but some functions from the cellphone app are missing at the Desktop Version.

Popular. It's security, for whatever reason, is constantly being compromised. Don't count on it being secure. I dumped it for better. Signal is one worthy alternative.

This is Facebook-owned spyware. It is impossible to use it without having your phone working, and it is impossible to get your phone working without surrendering your phone number to Facebook where it is associated with your Facebook account if you have one. In any case, Facebook will track you by your phone number in order to expand their $70 billion/year advertising empire. If this is OK with you and you don't mind this grievous violation of your privacy for no return to you, then go ahead and use WhatsApp. 1.5+billion people can't be wrong, right? Otherwise, use Signal https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/60246/signal which has the same capabilities and does not rape you.

Forces update: minus 4 stars. Says it supports 10.9 (the last OSX that wasn't locked down for your own incompetent good) - yay!: Plus 2 stars Doesn't actually launch on 10.9: minus 2 and half stars.

Useful and fast chat search function. Also emoji panel has useful search function too. Auto updates, however, not promptly. Using on OS X Mojave without issue.

They are assuming that all users in a certain area use the native language. This is incorrect. As with many, all my devices are set to use the English language. Compared to my native language, English is a more convenient and compact language when it comes to computers and devices.

As I do use my native language to communicate with friends and family, most of the text that I type in Whatsapp desktop is marked by the spell checker as misspelled as it is checking for English language. This is annoying. Give users the ability to disable spell checking which is a common feature in most macOS apps.

Whatsapp is not honoring the general system preferences which are set to NOT spell check at all and when it does it has to use the Dutch / Netherlands dictionary.

Furthermore: remove the auto update feature and/or let users decide if they want this by giving them choice to automatically update or just notify for updates and whether have them installed. I like to be in control of the devices I own. How convenient it may sound, it is not up to software developers to decide if an app needs to be updated.

I am on Mac OS 10.9.5. Until now, even though it lacks some important functionalities of the Android version, like video, Whatsapp has worked very well, but since version 0.3.1475 it crashes before it even opens. Useless.
