How to install WhatsApp for Mac OS X using the Bluestacks Android emulator.

To install WhatsApp on Mac OS X, you first need to install the Android emulator called BlueStacks and then you can go ahead and install the WhatsApp application to use on your computer without needing a mobile phone.

Unfortunately, WhatsApp doesn’t have a native application for computers (both Windows and Mac) so the install process is a bit more lengthy than usual but the video above will walk you through all of the necessary steps.

Once you have BlueStacks installed on your computer, the WhatsApp application is not always available when searching for applications in BlueStacks.

In order to install WhatsApp in BlueStacks, you’ll need to copy the application install link located at:

You’ll then need to copy and paste the application download link and share it as a private post to your Facebook account. This will allow you to use the Facebook app within BlueStacks to click on and download the WhatsApp application.

Once the application has been downloaded and installed, you’ll need to go through the WhatsApp verification process. This step of the installation required you to have access to a mobile phone (not necessarily a smartphone) but, once you’re account is verified, you’ll no longer need to have a mobile phone or smart phone to use WhatsApp on your computer running Mac OS X.
