WhatsApp is one of the most popular cross-platform mobile messaging tools available for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows users. While the app is geared solely toward mobile platforms, users have always yearned to have its desktop client as well. Here is how you can finally get OS X WhatsApp desktop client for your Macs.

WhatsApp desktop client for Mac:

iMessage and many other competing messaging tools have their own native Mac apps, something that WhatsApp has overlooked entirely. Having desktop clients help users message to their contacts while being busy working or playing on the big screens of MacBooks. A new and free tool is now available to help your craving of a Mac WhatsApp desktop client.

This new tool is appropriately named WhatsMac and is a free download. Bringing the darling app of millions of users to desktop, WhatsMac doesn’t do anything else but to bring the WhatsApp Web Client interface on your Macs. Remember that the WhatsApp Web Client is available for Windows, Android and BlackBerry but sadly not iOS due to Apple limitations as explained by WhatsApp,

“unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations.”

For WhatsMac to work, you will have to get your WhatsApp acount synced with your phone which means that only jailbroken iPhone users can avail the fanciness of this tool.

If you have jailbroken your iPhone, here is the workaround to get Web Client: How to Setup WhatsApp Web for iPhone. After which you can download WhatsMac for free from the GitHub page.

Let’s hope WhatsApp native client comes sooner for the OS X – no high hopes though.
