  1. Hi,
    This is something totally new that I wasn’t aware of, I only knew that if you want to run whatsapp on pc, you need to install bluestack first and that is the default option I used to choose each and everytime. But looks like this is a much better option to the bluestack crashing now and than. Will definitely give it a try. Thanks for sharing, keep posting such articles.
