The original beta version of WhatsApp on Mac is now available for everyone


Meta has begun making a publicly available beta version of its WhatsApp instant messaging app for Mac OS users, a long-awaited step for Apple Mac users.

A few months ago, the company released the first WhatsApp beta for macOS exclusively to a small group of people via TestFlight. Now the application can be downloaded from the official website.

(WABetaInfo), which monitors experimental WhatsApp features, announced five months ago the availability of WhatsApp applications for Mac OS systems through Mac Catalyst technology, which allows the transfer of iOS applications for iPhone devices to the Mac OS-System to take full advantage of the great features. Computer monitors, embedded keyboards, mice, and touchpads.

And for Mac users who want to try WhatsApp without downloading it through the service (TestFlight), you can now download it directly from the official WhatsApp website as a native application.

After installing the app, users can link their account on their iPhone or Android phone to WhatsApp on Mac OS by scanning a QR code, just like on a Windows PC.

Designed like a traditional Mac app, the app features an app sidebar for easy access to archived chats, starred messages, and calls. It also provides the ability to drag and drop files.

It should be noted that although the application can be downloaded and installed from the official WhatsApp website, it is still experimental and some features may not work properly, and the company expects to improve these features and introduce more in the future.

The new home screen of the app indicates that WhatsApp wants to know what users think of the app, so users can improve the app experience by sharing their feedback with WhatsApp using the Bug button located at the bottom of the app.
