Reliable but missing features

Darshan Dhande

WhatsApp for Desktop is a great and reliable way to extend the service to a laptop or computer. However, I think there are some features that could be added in order to utilise the application more effectively for a Mac. For example, a three finger tap on a chat can be used as a preview shortcut like 3D Touch on iOS. Also, an iPad and Apple Watch App could be appriciated by all users especially since Facebook Messenger can be available on platforms. Other than that, whatever is present is solid and reliable.

Scroll Issue in Desktop Application



The desktop application is very userful and it works great. But recently after the update, when you want to select multiple images to forward, we first select an image so that the checkboxes appears, the pages automatically scrolls to the bottom. For e.g., if the image is in between the chat & i want to forwards mutiple images, after selecting one image the page automatically scrolls to the botton of the page and it is tedious to scroll all the way up to find the image.

Usually the scroll shouldnt change while forwarding, i dont face this issue when i use the mobile app. Request you to look into the issue and find a fix.

I am using MacBook Pro Air so its the mac version of the software thats facing the issue.


Handy Application

The application has almost all features compared to that of the mobile app. Easy to share media and documents. One major drawback is that it requires the mobile to be connected. Currently the app does not make use of the Touch Bar. Looking forward to such features.
