WhatsApp: WhatsMac is finally arrived

whatsapp for macUntil now WhatsApp, the famous messaging service, was available for Android, Windows phone, iPhone and BlackBerry users. Now, thanks to a new free app called WhatsMac, you can chat through WhatsApp directly from OS X. This new app is completely free and Open Source.

Furthermore, WhatsMac allows you to use WhatsApp as usual, to chat, to send and receive audio, video, images and text. If you are eager (or just curious) to download WhatsMac, you can download it for free from this page. So, if you are addicted to WhatsApp and use your Mac for the most part of the day, this could be the right thing for you. Even if it is important to keep in mind that, for the moment, this is not an official app. Anyway, it provides a good user interface to work with.

So many users were waiting for this kind of development, but, as with most things, there is a little downside. In fact, it seems that iPhone users won’t be able to use WhatsMac, at least not immediately, because it does not work on iPhone. But luckily there is a solution (actually, two). While to enable WhatsMac, Android and Windows Phone users will have to scan the QR code, for iPhone users it is a little bit more complicated. But, as we said, they have two options.

With Jailbreak. If you have the jailbreak, you have to open Cydia and download WhatsApp Web Enabler from BigBoss repo. From here, just open Settings where you can find WhatsApp Web Enabler and, at this point, enable it. From now on, when you start WhatsApp on your iPhone, all you have to do is to scan the QR code by tapping Settings in the lower right, selecting WhatsApp Web and pointing the camera of your phone toward the Mac after opening web.whatsapp.com on Safari.

Without Jailbreak. Alternatively, you can use on your Mac an emulator like BlueStacks Android (it is still possible to find on the web the Beta version for Mac) or Arc Welder, a Chrome extension that allows you to launch Android apps.
