In dire need of touchbar support!


This app is mostly great, it does everything that all the other paid WhatsApp applications do for free…except one - EMOJIS ON THE TOUCHBAR!

It’s so annoying to have to individually click on every emoji I want to use when plenty of other programs (including 3rd party whatsapp apps) have this function.

I feel my rating is justified because, although a seemingly small issue, touchbar support cannot be that hard to implement, and it makes sending messages (the apps main functionality) so much more tiresome than it needs to be, please devs, how hard can it be to add this in? It’s literally the apps only flaw but it’s such a huge issue and needs fixing, once that’s fixed it’ll be an easy 5 star review.

Useful but could be much better


Overall I find WhatsApp Desktop useful but the connectivity issues are extremely annoying. They should really find a better connectivity architecture that is more stable. Also, the desktop app doesn’t even begin to explore some of the options it should offer like backing up some (or all) chats, better options for downloading all media from chats. Overall - lots of room for improvements.

Mobile app has to be open!


It’s one stupid thing that the Mobile app has to be open in order to have the desktop version working… Imagine a situation in which my phone battery dies and I really need to send a message to some one (using the desktop version)… But I can’t…! Why? Cuz it doesn’t work! Cuz my Whatsapp is not open on my phone!
On the other hand, having it open on my phone all the time, is consuming power… So it’s just annoying!
