WhatsApp desktop app coming to the Windows Store

WhatsApp desktop app coming to the Windows Store

After Spotify and iTunes, another big-name app is coming to Microsoft’s Windows Store: Facebook-owned WhatsApp.

As discovered by MSPoweruser, a listing of the WhatsApp Desktop app has popped up on the Windows Store, which indicates its imminent arrival on the Store.

Like WhatsApp’s desktop apps on other platforms, this Windows Store app serves to be an extension of your mobile phone, mirroring conversations and messages from the device. Set up requires scanning a QR code using the WhatsApp mobile app on your phone, and expectedly, you need to keep it in the vicinity of the PC for both to sync up. Since the app runs natively on the desktop, I expect it to support Windows 10’s native desktop notifications.
