AVOID due to constant security problems. Despite its popularity, I dumped it for better. So has the United Nations. Signal is one worthy alternative. -->"The United Nations officials are not using WhatsApp for purposes of communication as it is unsafe and vulnerable to hacking." https://www.ehackingnews.com/2020/01/un-officials-not-using-whatsapp-over.html

This is Chinese spy software. AVOID. Add WeChat, TikTok, and Zoom to that list.

Well,from the beginning - I don't know why the connection between my iMac and iPhone broke during moving settings from old 6 on brand new SE. Secondly it's a real nuisance that the only way of re-connecting them is via QR code with a ridiculous comment that the iPhone may sometimes not read it - with not a word what to do then. Thirdly the User's Manual isn't the 1st thing I can find on a dedicated website.And this leads straight to the only disadvantage -as to my ... taste - of the communicator. As far as other issues are concerned it works,it's reliable and generally user's friendly.

Are we kidding? Can’t I use it on iPad and Mac at the same time? Furthermore, "WhatsApp web" doesn’t have all the functions of the mobile version! There are also serious privacy and security issues! I hope I won’t use it again as soon as everyone’s using Telegram.

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.

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

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.
