WhatsApp desktop app has just been launched.

There's more than one billion monthly active WhatsApp users and now all of them will be able to access it from a computer as well as their phones, because a WhatsApp desktop app has just been launched.

Technically you could already access the service from a computer using WhatsApp Web, but where that lives in a web browser the desktop app runs natively on your machine, so you don't need an internet window open - plus there's support for native desktop notifications and better keyboard shortcuts.

You still need to be running WhatsApp on your phone to use it, the app simply mirrors the messages, but if you're sat at a computer it's a lot faster and easier to message people from there, using a full sized keyboard, than switch to a tiny touchscreen.
