How to install whatsApp desktop yourself on your Windows PC or MAC?
As of October 2020, two billion users had monthly access to WhatsApp. This messaging service is one of the most popular mobile social apps in the world. Many messenger apps offer features such as group chats, image exchange, video and even audio messages.
Microsoft Teams is new when it comes to instant messaging. Yet Microsoft often succeeds in tapping into the market by just making sure that the user experience is higher and the added value is clearly felt.
Sharing files in WhatsApp can be done in a more convenient way - but this way is as static as emails. So managing versions through WhatsApp is difficult. Unless you provide DropBox or OneDrive or an alternative so users can log into those separately, too.
In Microsoft Teams lies a long-term solution when it comes to file collaboration. Group chat, as well as videoCalling . With 49 people enjoying landscape backgrounds together while talking on the phone, sharing screen and making a recording at the same time are the new possibilities of the modern world.
In addition, Microsoft Teams could make the click to personal use - while WhatsApp will have more trouble landing in the corporate world.
