Works Perfectly on my MacBook Air - I just downloaded the app and had it working in minutes. It is so easy. I just picked up where I had left off on two different phone chats, one a single person chat and the other a large group chat that is years old. No problem! That was easy.
Not much point - I don't understand why my phone has to be connected to the internet for this app to function. If my phone only has to be connected to the internet (and not the mobile network) why can't my computer being connected to the internet serve the same purpose. It's the standard issue I have with whatsapp -- if you're not using my phone's mobile connection why is it so strongly tied to the phone? They need to rewire things to be less dependent on the phone concept. Apple's message app doesn't need me to have my phone connected to the internet to work, why should this? I got the desktop app for when I travel and I can't always connect my phone to the web or can't connect it as easily.

desktop version - useless without a phone. Does not mention this until uploaded.
Ignore the haters, this is AMAZING - 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.
Makes No Sense - 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.
Quick respond from notifications not working - 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.
Need for Voice and Video Call - App is ok, but it needs more improvments, like Voice and Video call on desktop app. It would be great.
