    In 2009, WhatsApp was founded by two Yahoo! Former employees, Brian Acton and Jan Koum. Since then, there was no looking back for them. Whatsapp added 1 million users every day, and now Whatsapp has around 450 millions users, which indeed a large number of users.

    Before the launch of Whatsapp webapp,  when someone asked me how to run Whatsapp on a PC or laptop, my answer was install an Android emulator like Bluestacks. However, but BlueStack has a lot of complex requirements, which often left users irritated. Some of the requirements to install BlueStacks on your PC are:

    • PC at least have 4 GB of free Disk Space that's a huge one.
    • Minimum 2GB RAM is required to install Bluestacks in your PC
    • DirectX 9.0 or higher version must be installed on your PC.
    • You preferably have a Graphic Card for smooth running of Bluestack software
    • Your computer Graphic drivers must be updated for compatible to Bluestacks
    • You must have Admin rights of PC
