WhatsApp for Desktop is the unofficial client which fulfills the need of using WhatsApp right from the desktop, without any web browser. Although most of the people like to use WhatsApp on their smartphones only, but those who use WhatsApp Web also wish if there were a desktop client for WhatsApp. In that case, this desktop app for WhatsApp can come in handy. It is actually a web wrapper for WhatsApp Web. So all the options you find on WhatsApp Web (including the interface) are exactly same in this desktop client. The only difference is that you don’t have to use any web browser.
You can connect (or integrate) your WhatsApp account with this desktop app and enjoy using it to chat with friends, send images, take the photo (using the webcam), etc.
