How To Use WhatsApp On Computer Without A Phone (Step By Step Guide)

The basic design of WhatsApp did not allow it to be used on a computer in its earlier days. 

The popular messaging app was meant to be used alone on the mobile phone since a mobile phone number operated it.

However, the app was later made available for computers on ‘The WhatsApp web,’ but users still needed to have their mobile phones near since the computer version was basically ‘drawn’ from the phone.

But as of now, the app can be used on a computer without the aid of a mobile phone. There are several ways through which this can be done.

In today’s article, we will explore the various ways you can use the WhatsApp messaging app on your computer without the aid of a mobile phone.

Let’s get rolling

Android SDK

You can install an Android SDK on your computer, but that will take some time and many resources.

Using Android Emulators

Just like Bluestacks, the emulators create an environment on your computer that will look like an Android interface.

This will allow you to install and use Android apps on the computer. 

So you will be able to run the mobile phone WhatsApp app on your computer through the emulator.

In this article, we will be talking about an emulator known as Bluestacks, which is used to run android applications on the computer. 

First, you will need to download the app from their website,

After you have downloaded it, you install it by double-clicking it to begin the installation process.

After the installation is complete, open the app by clicking on the app’s icon that appears on the screen.

Once you have opened the app, you will see that WhatsApp has been listed on the app. 

However, if it is not there, you will be able to find it by searching in the bluestacks search bar.

After you find WhatsApp, install it by clicking on the install button. It has been downloaded and installed. 

Open it by clicking on the icon. You will then be asked to enter your mobile number for the verification code sent to you from WhatsApp

You then enter your mobile phone number or any other number that you can use.

If you enter a home number instead, you will receive a failed message. 

You then click on the option ‘call me. Whatsapp will then contact you, so you listen carefully and write down the code delivered in the message.

You then enter the code in the space where it is asked on your computer. 

Your account will then be created, and you can then start chatting with anyone.

Bluestacks is the easiest way to use WhatsApp on your computer without a mobile phone. 

You have to download it from their website and install it just like we did in the article. 

You will also need a mobile number that you can use to register it since the bluestacks is an android running on your computer. 

When everything is done, you will be able to chat on your computer with the emulated WhatsApp.

Third-party Software

Some software out there can run the WhatsApp messenger app on a computer. 

Trying some of these apps would allow you to run WhatsApp on your computer. 

We cannot recommend any of these apps since we have not tried them yet.

Whatsapp Web

This is why the official way you can use WhatsApp on your computer, although you will still need your mobile phone, which has an active WhatsApp account before you can use the WhatsApp web.

Whatsapp web cannot be said to be an independent WhatsApp application. 

All it does is duplicate the WhatsApp account on your phone onto the computer so you can chat on the computer.


WhatsApp is one of the most used social messaging apps, and it is also known to be one of the easiest ways to communicate with someone.

WhatsApp used to work on the phone when it was first launched, and now they have made it possible to run it on a computer.

We covered all the software that will assist you in using WhatsApp on your pc without any hassle.
