In our previous article, we talked about how to use WhatsApp for PC; in this article, we look at how can you install and use Whatsapp Bluestacks.

Unlike WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp for PC, the app, WhatsApp BlueStacks does not need one to sync their computer with a phone to use the messaging service.

BlueStacks or BlueStacks App Player is an Android emulator, which helps to install WhatsApp on your PC, so you can safely use it.

The BlueStacks App Player is designed to enable Android applications to run on PCs running Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh.

So, just as you need Play Store on your Android phone to download apps, you also need Bluestacks App Player on your PC to download WhatsApp among other apps.

It can be downloaded for free at bluestacks.com. However, it needs a huge RAM; if you have a weak machine, you’ll find it quite challenging to use it.
