I am wanting to operate WhatsApp on my desktop computer allowing me to produce and send mp3 files to some of the men…
My problem…when I installed BlueStacks Agent (emulator) to run the program I authorized it to run WhatsApp…but then my phone does not work with WhatsApp.
I have to reauthorize the phone and then when I go back to the desktop…reauthorize it again.
Is there a way around this?

There may be a way to deal with this…not sure.
Do I need to get another number to authorize this with?
Can I find a way to use both the phone AND desktop?
Would a different emulator work?

Anyone knowing about this that can give me some insight would be appreciated.
You will probably need more info…just write.
Thanks

Looked at the link and tried again.  It seems to work on all phones except the IPHONE.  It does not give me an option for the iphone.

Thanks

Try the icloud desktop
Get going with iCloud on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac. Then set up iCloud on your Windows PC in a few easy steps.

Or forget all the apps and upload them to drop box or a site where they can download them from.

Additional information.  The web is too spotty here to use some of the suggestions you gave me.  It has to be by the phone and Pc.

I am not sure if it is iphone related or not…I think it may be the way WhatsApp is made. But I really don’t know.
If I register a number with WhatsApp then whatever device I register with must stay that way…so if I use it on a pc the pc must stay registered that way.
I would have thought they would allow a web based log in for the same number.

Thanks

It seems to me that the purpose of Bluestacks and WhatsApp differ.
BlueStacks App Player lets you run your favorite mobile apps in your browser and on PC.
WhatsApp uses your phone number to make chatting with friends and family.

I assume you are referring to the browser use of WhatsApp?
I tried it…and it still requires me signing in with my phone number…thus disabling my phone. Then I have to reauthorize my phone to use it. That is what I am trying to keep from doing

I appreciate your help, anyway to get around this.  I am using an iphone.

Thanks
