Sharing Menu 4/5
Please add support for macOSs sharing menu.
Constantly crashing upon opening 4/5
Ever since I upgraded to 0.2.8082 on my Mac OS (Sierra, Version 10.12.1), I am unable to open Whatsapp application - it crashes immediately on startup.
Quick respond from notifications not working 3/5
By SAM MD2B
Seems like quick respond from the notifications pop up does not seem to be sending response. When I open the full app and the responses that I sent are no where to be found. Please address this matter. ALSO please for the love of WHATSAPP make an APPLE watch app. Please and thank you.
Cannot reply 5/5
when i get notification, i cannot reply from there :(.But i’ll give you 5 star :).Because it’s best app i have ever seen
Ignore the haters, this is AMAZING 5/5
Seriously, I've used Messenger desktop and Mac, Signal for Mac, iMessage Mac.. this is the best. The setup process is so streamlined, the animations are beautiful, the UI is easy and pleasureable.. it just works, and it's a true app (unlike Messenger which is just a website inside a container). I'm sure there's additional features that could be added, but to me I just want an app that's fast, pretty, reliable -- this checks all the boxes.
Touch bar support 3/5
This version brought “some” support for the touch bar, but the implementation is far from what we see in other apps… only 6 emojis and no way to select another one? C’mon…
I also would like to see the avality to place calls and video calls from the app
desktop version 1/5
useless without a phone. Does not mention this until uploaded.
This latest update is terrible. I cant even launch the app, because it keeps crashing every time.
Need for Voice and Video Call 3/5
By Emin Emini
App is ok, but it needs more improvments, like Voice and Video call on desktop app. It would be great.
Reply on app not working 3/5
Until now when I click on the reply button on the desktop notifications, it worked without me going to the main app. But for some time now, it has not been working. I deleted and reinstall but the samd problem is persisting. It has made using the app very frustrating because I am so used to replying on the notification. I click send before I realise that it did not work. Kindly fix this.
Makes No Sense 2/5
I got the app on my computer because i don’t have a phone yet. Then i figured out that i can’t use it becasue i have to have the app on a phone to scan a stupid barcode. If there was a way to just have you sign in or make an account that would have made getting the app not such a waste of time.
Please make it more customizable, more features!! 3/5
I love typing out messages on my laptop because it is so much easier but there are NO features on the desktop app!! Please make it possible to turn off enter to attomatically send messages!! Just trying to make my messages easier to read and this is so frustrating!! Please make this app like the the mobile app!! The way this app is is sooo frustrating!!
STOP WORKING 1/5
Always asking an update. Just stopped functioning.
Newest update doesn’t work 1/5
Everytime I try and open the app, prompts me to update to the latest version on the App Store. when in reality u am using the latest version.
Cannot reply via notifications 1/5
The app was working perfectly earlier, but recently after the update. I cannot reply from the notification pop up. I enter the message assuming its been sent. But when I check back it shows that it has not been sent. Please adress this issue ASAP.
Stopped Working 1/5
It literally stopped working from this week. When I open the app in osx it just tells me the app is old and needs to be updated in App Store. And when I open App Store it just tells me I have the latest version.
I even have checked the version numbers and as expected I do have the 0.2.8000 version which the App Store also has. So essentially they didn’t even update the app store version of the app.
Latest update not working. Keeps asking me to update from appstore 1/5
By Vik Ara
Keeps asking me to update from appstore when opened. I uninstalled and re-installed from App Store, but still the same error message. SAD!
reply from notifications 5/5
i have been using this for a while. it saves me lot of time and its highly convenient. with the last update reply from notificaitons doesnt work in os x 10.11.6
option is there and but when i reply it doesnt go at all.
I started to get a message that I need to update the software, but I have the latest version. 1/5
Starting today, everytime I open the app on my Mac I get an error message that I need to update the software, and when I click on the update button it takes me to the App store where it says I have the latest version 0.2.8.
I sent an email to WhatsApp’s support and they referred me to their FAQ page which has nothing about this problem.
Looking for a solution, but for now it’s not worth more than 1 star.
no video calls:( 3/5
The chat works fine, but, It would be so much better if you could make video calls like the mobile app.
Current Mac app version is not working 2/5
Current Mac app version is not working; keeps asking to update through the Appstore even though there is not available update. Please fix
Its great but... 4/5
By now this app doesnt support features for touch bar! I think once it does that then only it can be best messaging application!
It shouldn’t need the phone dependency 2/5
Why does this app have to be tied to the phone so much? It causes needless errors and task-switching in order to make things work. Just let it be a standalone app.
The best cross-platform messaging app 5/5
Whatsapp is the fastest and simplest. I use it on my Android two Mac computers seamlessly. Media management is simple, and syncing is instant. I WhatsApp takes on the highly overrated monster called Slack.
quick replay not working 2/5
quick replay not working please fix it please
Great but... 4/5
The app itself is great, I can do all my stuff, but I can’t send GIFs!
I would LOVE to see GIFs come to the Mac.
Overall great app and would recomend it to everyone having a Mac.
Great start, but needs improvement 3/5
I love using WhatsApp on my iPhone and like the idea of being able to use the desktop app as well. The only real gripe I have is that the desktop app does not recognize keyboard text shortcuts, nor does it allow you to type seamlessly in another language. In my case, I use WhatsApp a lot to talk to friends and family in Mexico and Spain—in Spanish. The app does not recognize that I am typing in Spanish and marks all words as mis-spelled and underlines them in red. Further, it does not do any auto-correct or suggested text features. A big request I would have is to incorporate the languages / multi-language abilities that other Mac developers (and Apple) put into their apps. If the app were improved with this upgrade, I would give this app 5 stars!
Waste of time. Need to have iphone conn to internet. Useless 1/5
I fail to understand the point of having to have your phone connected to the internet to use this app. That obviates any usefulness.
This app is a pure waste of time
More room for improvements 4/5
By Dr TVS
I think that it is fantastic to have the desktop application working even if the account-linked mobile is out of Internet connexion. (This, for instance, if offered in the Telegram app). It would also be nice to be able to make voice and video calls via this desktop application. In a way, this would be to push for a more standalone app, independent of its cellular phone counterpart.
BAD BAD BAD 1/5
The most usless app I ever installed,
I wish that the app is not dependent to the phone’s internet connection 4/5
I wish that the app is not dependent to the phone’s internet connection. It’s annoying when it happens.
MAJOR CONCERN 4/5
GREAT APP….BIGGEST PROBLEM IS WHILE RECORDING A MESSAGE FOR SOMEONE & YOU ARE 5-6 MINS INTO THE RECORDING YOUR PHONE RINGS….IT ERASES YOUR ENTIRE MESSGAE AND YOU HAVE TO START OVER….IT’S SO FRUSTRATING. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE.
Useless—phone most be on to work 1/5
What’s the use if you have to be running the app on your phone for the desktop whatsapp to work? The point is to remain connected if your cell battery dies, or you don’t have your phone on hand. Two thumbs down.
Why so phone-dependent? 4/5
All in all the app is good. Good to have an option to access your messangers over the mac while doing some stuff rather then swiping the devices in your hands. However, is it possible that you will make the app usable without having my phone turned on, especially when on trip, it’s quite annoying. Would be a great app (5 stars) if it can be an option.
Really solid, but could use some slight improvement 4/5
Overall I enjoy it, however, I wish the keyboard was a bit smarter (like iMessage)— mainly, recognizing capital letters. Also, the ability to utilize my touchbar (for emojis, etc) would be fantastic if it were incorporated.
Why don't you make an independent app frm phone like Telegram did? 1/5
Why don't you make completely independent app like Telegram did?! It's such a pain working with WhatsApp I truly prefer Telegram. I deman you to add support for touch bar.
sharing menu 3/5
I would appreciate if there is an opportunity to share files (like pictures) on a mac os. There is a wonderful thing like „share“ and I can’t understand why whatsapp is not supported in this menu.
PURE GARBAGE! 1/5
Don’t waste your time or storage space. Doesn’t do what it says it can do. In fact, it doesn’t do anything! You can’t scan the code with your camera like it says it can within the app, it scans with a third party QR scan app and then does NOTHING! You have to load your profile information before you can use the app. Too much info given out there that anyone can access. I downloaded then deleted after 5 minutes trying to get it to work. Also got a virus warning about the download, so beware! Glad it was free, I wouldn’t pay 1¢ for this piece of crap!
Videophone calling 4/5
Can not wait for the videophone calling feature for WhatsApp for desktop please add it and makes the interface like the iPhone face time and allows to change the ringtone
Since the last update (on which the emoticons are horrible, I know this because of my phone) I cannot see the emoticons on this device (and yes it is fully updated etc etc). It seems to me that every update something goes wrong instead of it going better :(
LOL!!! whatsapp web = whtasapp dekstop 2/5
meminta konfirmasi pada whatsapp web di ponsel??? ini web atau aplikasi??? apakah ini lelucon???
Needs a Search option 4/5
By Temo Favela
needs a tool to be able to search with in the texts.
Works great but lacking video chat 4/5
The app works great for me. I’ve never had issues with it freezing or malfunctioning for my MacBook (OS High Sierra 10.13.1). I love that I can still send and listen to audio messages, take pics and videos and send them, and still use emojis. The only down side to the app is that you can’t video chat with it. Video chat capabilites would make the app perfect.
Would give have given it a 5 star rating butttttttttttttt 3/5
Doesn’t have the ability to make calls thru the desktop app or web.
Can’t delete it. Will go to Apple and tell them. I guess they will report this.
not bad! 3/5
i do not understand why my phone should connect to internet then i send messages please change this option
When I updated the recent upgrade. It upgraded then it repeated this till I had to stop it? 4/5
By James A Smith IV

No support for other languages 3/5
A good start, but the app miss a lot of features
