Good, but has potential to be better!
I really like the idea of this, to function much like iMessage does! However, there is definitely room for improvement. I would really like to see video calls supported on the desktop version as it is on mobile, much like FaceTime but with compatibility between different types of phones. I think this is the most useful feature that could be added. However, as some other users have mentioned, it would also be quite nice for this application to function without having your phone on, nearby, and connected. These changes would make this desktop version SO wonderful, up to par of the mobile version we all know and love. Would love to see these features rolled out sometime soon, please!
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.
Need a “Mark as read” option and touch bar support
When i keep getting notifications from WhatsApp it blocks a portion of my screen for a few seconds, leaving it unusable. They should implement a “mark as read” option next to the reply button. Apple has added this feature to messages on MacOS High Sierra and it makes a world of difference.
A second thing that needs to be supported is support for the touch bar. Maybe add some things like emojis, forward, and reply buttons.
Besides that, this app does what its supposed to do.
