This Mac utility is a desktop client for the Whatsapp services. You can use this program to stay in touch with your friends, manage your personal account, share your videos, photos, and documents with other Whatsapp users, create group chats, and so much more.

The interface of this desktop client looks exactly like the one of the mobile or web version. Everything from the Contacts page to the group chat screen is identical to the mobile edition. So, if you're familiar with the smartphone version of the utility, you will easily handle this desktop client for the Whatsapp services.

Before using the program on your Mac, you first need to use your mobile phone to scan the QR code that's being displayed in the desktop client window. Then, the utility to import your Whatsapp data into your Mac and allow you to send messages and files from your computer.

The only thing missing from this tool is the ability to make calls. However, if someone's calling you on Whatsapp, this desktop client displays a notification on your monitor letting you know that the contact in question is trying to reach you and that you should answer the call from your smartphone.

Briefly, you should install this program on your Mac if you're the type of user who is using the Whatsapp services often and wants to easily send messages and files from a computer instead of a small-screen device.
