Looking to use the popular messaging app Whats Call on PC (Windows or Mac)? In this article, we’ll show you how it can be done.
WhatsCall Messenger is a chat and voicecall app, used as an Facebook messenger alternative. The features include:
- customizable themes
- group chats and channels
- voice calling
- text messaging
- stickers, emojis and hashtags
- cloud based messaging
- file sharing
- media sharing
- data encryption (no hacking, interception or spying)
Most users are really happy with the functionality of this app, as it’s 4.2 out of 5 star rating in the Google Play Store would suggest. However, one thing I would point out is that the app’s API is Telegram (meaning this app is based off of Telegram Messenger), as disclosed by the developers, though they claim that there are additional features in WhatsCall that are not available in Telegram.
How to use WhatsCall on my computer?
Until WhatsCall releases a version of this popular app for desktop computers, the primary way to use WhatsCall for PC is through the use of an Android Emulator.
