Last year i wrote about installing WhatsApp on windows 7 through BlueStacks. I suppose for some old users, they’ve might already moved to real smartphone. Well, smartphone prices now getting cheap and cheaper. Anyway if you’re a new WhatsApp user (especially with BlueStacks) you might want to know several things that might be useful for you.
The first thing you need to do is add contact or fiends to your WhatsApp in order to chat or do group chat. I already mentioned about it on my earlier post (contacts and group chat) so i guess you have it done already before you read this article. Simply click show menu and navigate to contact click menu again and then choose New contact. If you have several account, you might be asked for on which account this contact will be created.
Profile picture on WhatsApp just like an identify of you that will be shown on every friends on your contact. To change profile picture and name, simply click on Show Menu, choose Settings, click on Profile from the list and then click on image to change profile image. You can choose to use picture from Gallery or get it from Web Cam directly. If you want to use picture from computer you must use alternative ways. That is using cloud storage account such as DropBox or Google Drive and direct accessing shared folder. Click on pencil on the right side of your current name in order to change name.
Like a facebook status, sometime you want to share what you’re up to right now. Like what’s you’re doing or where you are at this moment. To change status, click on Show menu, and then navigate to Status. Now click on pencil icon on the right side to edit your current status.
If you noticed that you have to press Send button in order to send message every time. This would not be a problem in real smartphone, but not if you’re on BlueStacks (computer). You have to click the button every time you want to send the message. To change it to Enter button on keyboard, click on Show menu, Settings and then Chat settings. You’ll see in the first line “Enter is send”. Check on the right checkbox to activate. You can now simply press Enter button on keyboard to send message.
