How to Install and Use WhatsApp on your Computer for Free

You can use WhatsApp on any computer of choice as long as it meets the software's minimum requirement.


Are you tired of using smartphone but still want to be able to communicate with your WhatsApp friends? I guess you must have heard that it is possible but told that you will need to still have access to a smartphone before you can. You do not actually need a smartphone to be able to use WhatsApp on your computer. This program is completely different from the one I wrote about in How to Use WhatsApp on Your Computer For Free which requires that you have access to a smartphone and the WhatsApp on the phone connected to the app.

To be able to use WhatsApp on your computer without having access to a smartphone, just follow the steps below;

  • Once the download is complete, double click on the software and follow the prompts to install it.
  • Launch the software once its installation is complete and wait patiently as its interface is configured to work seamlessly on your computer (remember that the software is going to work just like an Android OS).


  • Go through the tutorials by clicking on Next at each stage and then finally I got it at the end.

Additional Steps: Installation of WhatsApp messenger

The steps below are the same for every Android operating system. If you successfully installed the Android emulator by following the steps outlined above and have downloaded the WhatsApp messenger on your Android smartphone before, then the steps below will be very familiar. To install WhatsApp on the your computer and start using it to chat with friends and family, follow the additional steps below;

  • On the Droid4x interface, locate and click on App Store.

  • On the App Store page, choose Existing if you already have a Gmail account or New if you want to create another account. For the sake of time, I will be using an existing account here.
