WhatsApp 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. In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

The only interesting update would be to make the application available without this pandemic — the smartphone. The only problem is that the developer DOESN'T WANT to, who knows why ?

Is it possible to use this desktop version WITHOUT being connected to WhatsApp on an iPhone, which I do NOT have? OR Is it possible to download an older version that is compatible with an iPod Touch (2019-iOS 15.7.5)

How can I find and download an older version of WhatsApp that is compatible with my 2019 iPod Touch? OR a version that functions on my desktop iMac WITHOUT the iOS version?

It is true that nowadays, almost everyone uses a smartphone, even infants. But those who do not have a smartphone consider the fact that there is no version for Mac as discrimination. The developer has been turning a deaf ear for years, to release a version for Mac, so that WhatsApp users are not dependent on a smartphone. Why ? Maybe this is a commercial explanation...

Intel only? Time to get a more current setup! Only One Pro Mac is still Intel and that's being replaced this coming Fall! Time to catch up!

Update is really slow on desktop. It takes several minutes to synchornise chats - old version did not. And because it also 'works' offline, chats are husseled like hell when switching between desktop and phone. Some messages are not delivered at phones using 'old' version. So it now makes Whatsapp an unreliable irritating slow messaging service. Time to switch to something else.

What do I think of it ? For visibility, the developers are working hard: every few days, a new application update appears. I think there is a problem here...

DON'T USE WHATSaPP! Facebook told us how they own all our information on this app. There are safer, more private options including Signal, Telegram, and Apple Messages. This app seems "free," but the cost is too high, IMO.

The developer's website is the official WhatsApp site - curious how many people here scream "Chinese spyware! Chinese spyware!" - since when Facebook got Chinese?

Keep Chinese SPYWARE OFF your computer. The world is entirely too gullible when it comes to digital warfare. Your content is being stolen and used against you.
