download whatsapp on pc.This is not a player like Bluestack or youwave but a simple software specially designed to work only whatsapp for
PC.It is much smaller in size(9mb) than any other emulators.But due to change in Whatssapp method of creating new passwords Wassapp is
showing an error while registering.
