USe Whatsapp with a new number separately on PC

These two methods have a new Whatsapp account with a separate number on PC. The first method is using bluestacks Android Emulator and the second one is using YouWave Emulator. Both have their pros and cons. I recommend you to use WhatsApp using the Bluestacks method.

Download WhatsApp For PC using Bluestacks

First, you have to download one Android Emulator software (which is called as Bluestacks app player) to use WhatsApp on Windows PC. This software is available for free. You can download the software from below link.

Download Bluestacks For PC

  • After the completion of the download,  launch the software and install it like all other Windows software. It will take a while to download and install the software.
  • Open the BlueStacks software after installing it on your Windows 10 or Windows 8/7 computer. If you had installed BlueStacks successfully (correctly), you would get a window like in below image.

  • Now, Open Google Play store and Search for Whatsapp and install like in the below video.
  • Open WhatsApp in BlueStacks and enter your mobile number you will receive a message enter the code. If you don’t have the option to enter code wait for 5 min, then you will get an option to Verify with Voice call using the voice call method.. Open Whatsapp, Select your country, Enter your Phone number and verify your Account to use WhatsApp on your Laptops or Desktop.

Important step: Sync Bluestacks With Your Android Phone (Update: Not Necessary Now Skip this)

Now, I will show you how to download WhatsApp on your Laptop using Youwave Android emulator. Simply follow the below steps in minutes you can use WhatsApp on Your PC. This is the second method. If you get any problems while installing Bluestacks, use this method.

Method 2: WhatsApp For Windows 10/8/7 PC

  1. First, go to Youwave Android Emulator official website and download the software.
  • If the above link is not working, then try this  >>  Latest working version Download Youwave.
  • Download Youwave software for free from the above URL.
  • After completion of your download, install the software and head over below procedure.

If you successfully install Youwave software open it; then, you will see a screen like below.

  • Click on view button which is located at the left side top. You will see a drop-down menu there click on online content.
  • After clicking on online content, you will get options like the below image there as you can expect to click on WhatsApp. Now you freely download WhatsApp for PC.

Install Whatsapp on computer

  • Once clicking on WhatsApp wait for few seconds after that WhatsApp will be installed on your computer.

Activate WhatsApp in Youwave

Now, Go to home screen click on a right top corner as you can see in the first mage. That is menu button after pressing that one you will see all installed applications. There you can find WhatsApp.

  1. Open WhatsApp and enter your country code or just select your country and enter your phone number.
  2. After entering phone wait for 5 minutes for auto-verification. After 5 minutes you will get an option to get the code via the call like in an image below.
  3. Click on call me and listen to the system and enter the verification code there.

    • Actually you can use it free by selecting to add 5 free apps. Select the choice on the right side when the window pops up. It’s either that or pay $24 dollars a year. I think downloading 5 apps isn’t terrible for something as good as bluestacks.

  • Thank y0u very much.

  • 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.
