First, you have to download one software (which is called as Bluestacks app player) to use WhatsApp. This software is available for free. You can download the software from below link. It is just 9 MB software. It just takes 2-3 minutes depending upon your network speed.

  • I have gone through the process and used it. But I can firmly say that Bluestacks is easier and more reliable than this scheme. In this provided scheme, U need an android phone with unlimited internet plan, which we use as usual. Its only shows your chats and your mobile screen on the chrome after while you scan the bar-code. I would prefer you to stay on Bluestacks.
