  1. WhatsApp Desktop App Wont Update Properly


    Just tried to use the WhatsApp desktop app, which has been working fine for months, and up pops a box saying "Please update WhatsApp from the Windows App Store" along with a an 'Update' button. Pressing the button takes you to the store, where it tells you that WhatsApp is already installed and offers the option to 'Launch', and round it goes again.


    I've tried updating via the 'Downloads and updates' link in the store, but that tells me that everything is up to date.


    I've tried removing and reinstalling the app, with the same result.


    Does anybody have any ideas? Is it a general problem or something specific to my machine (Surface Pro 4)?


    Thanks for looking.

    :)

  2. Whatsapp desktop - making a chat / call with no contacts


    A friend uses Whatsapp from a phone. I'd like to use whatsapp from my desktop or phone to communicate with them.

    I have installed whatsapp on my android phone and have connected the desktop. And am leaving the phone turned on, as directed.

    I refused to permit Whatsapp to read my contacts, etc.. I'm not a big facebook fan and know that they share everything everywhere and sell it everywhere.

    However, I cannot figure a way to make or even receive a call using whatsapp without using my contacts list.
    Is this true or is there something I'm missing. On the desktop app I put in a phone number and it wants to search my contacts, which of course it does not have. After using "Create Group" same thing.

    No way to make a call at all with whatsapp if you don't share your contacts with it?

    if so, Whatsapp is completely broken for me.

    And if so that's fine since I can use Skype or Discord just fine.

    Thanks much,
    wg
