WhatsApp for Mac with Native Apple Silicon Support Available in Beta
WhatsApp, the popular messaging client, is now available for the Mac with native Apple Silicon support.
The WhatsApp client for Apple Silicon is currently in beta, but it is stable and functions fairly well, and should offer better performance compared to builds intended for older Intel Macs.
Interested users who don’t mind beta testing software can grab the WhatsApp with native Apple Silicon support now from the WhatsApp website.
Copying the WhatsApp app to the /Applications folder is all you need to do to install it, then just launch and sync with WhatsApp on your iPhone or Android as usual.
The beta WhatsApp client works pretty well with the major features that you’d expect.
While WhatsApp is typically dependent on an iPhone or Android, you can run WhatsApp without a phone if you need to.
WhatsApp has been available for Mac for quite a while but native Apple Silicon support is new with this beta build.
Cool seems to work faster will see if it’s buggy, apple silicon version is welcome took them awhile. Everything else on my Mac is apple silicon already.
Works ok for me, but the minimum window size is far too big, hogs too much screen real estate
