Whatsapp has released a dedicated desktop app, allowing Whatsapp to better integrate into your PC, leaving your contacts at your fingertips whether you are on your phone or PC. 

The new application is designed for Windows 8 PCs and newer as well as Mac OS 10.9 and newer, though we can confirm that the app does function on Windows 7. The desktop version of Whatsapp will function in a similar way to Whatsapp Web, allowing desktop syncing with WhatApp on your mobile phone but offering better support for desktop notifications and other desktop features.  


     Today we're introducing a desktop app so you have a new way to stay in touch anytime and anywhere - whether on your phone or computer at home or work. Like WhatsApp Web, our desktop app is simply an extension of your phone: the app mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device.

Edit: Oh so it's just an Electron App. lol fair enough. Better than needing a browser plugin I guess, but still, works exactly the same.Quote
