Whatsapp Messenger has become the app of choice for more than 400 million users around the world who choose to send text messages for free. Now, users also have the possibility to install the service on a PC. Installing Whatsapp on PC is not yet official, and it can be performed through third-party software called Bluestacks.
However, even if you are using Whatsapp on PC, or the mobile version, there is more to the application than just typing and sending messages. The service has many other interesting features and options, and here I want to show you some of the most important ones.
Send Whatsapp conversation history to your contacts
This might not seem too much big of a deal, but in fact, this feature can prove to be pretty useful especially when you want to show something to someone, to prove your point. You can share the whole conversation history from Whatsapp via email. This feature can be found in the Menu option in the conversation, at the bottom of the screen. Head to More, and select email conversation, before entering the address of the recipient. Whatsapp will create an email with the whole text conversation, including pictures, voice, or video clips.
Change Whatsapp Wallpaper
When you are tired of seeing the same wallpaper over and again, you might want a change. Whatsapp allows us to change the wallpaper with a picture of out choice. Simply if you go to Wallpaper option in the chat menu, you can pick a picture shared there, or you can upload one from your computer, in the case of Whatsapp for PC, or from your Smartphone in the case of the mobile version.
Create shortcuts to Whatsapp conversation
I want to say that this feature was very helpful for me, especially since I had only two contacts to talk to. I mean; I chat on Whatsapp on a daily basis, and the fact that shortcuts for these conversations were on my screen it helped me a lot. In the case of Whatsapp for PC, we can have the same thing. We can simply add a shortcut conversation for a contact we want right on the desktop. In this way, you can save a lot of time browsing for the respective contact. Just tap on the name of the conversation you want to open, and it will take you directly to the create message function.
Change your Whatsapp status
Perhaps some of you already know about this feature. It is helpful for those who want to share their thought with others. If you want to change your status, head over to your profile and tap on Status. Here, you can add any text you want, share some emoticons or smiley faces; the thing that best describes your feelings. The same thing applies for the profile picture. If you want to change your profile picture, tap on the automatic picture you see on your profile, and choose one from the gallery.
Whatsapp for PC is the same as the mobile version of the application with the only difference that your contacts will not load automatically, and you will need to add them one by one. Download Bluestacks and search for Whatsapp on PC to have the same features on your computer as well.
