Not so much happy with app for Mac
I was so happy to be able to use WhatsApp on Mac since I have been using it on my phone. However, the app for Mac is not so much good. everytime there's one function that does not work such as I can't attached pictures or video anymore as of today! I can't use or see all the emojies on my Mac bar anymore and Apple told me it's WhatsApp setup! Privacy I can't see all the funcations that I can use on whatsapp on my phone on the Mac. Another, issue when I vieo call I can't change horizontal to vertical my own picture and again apple told me it's WhatsApp setup! I do not understand why I do not have the option to be able to choose my video from horizental to vertical or visversa. I wish the app was more funcational. And hard to reachout to someone for help! Thanks
Great start, but needs improvement
I love using WhatsApp on my iPhone and like the idea of being able to use the desktop app as well. The only real gripe I have is that the desktop app does not recognize keyboard text shortcuts, nor does it allow you to type seamlessly in another language. In my case, I use WhatsApp a lot to talk to friends and family in Mexico and Spain—in Spanish. The app does not recognize that I am typing in Spanish and marks all words as mis-spelled and underlines them in red. Further, it does not do any auto-correct or suggested text features. A big request I would have is to incorporate the languages / multi-language abilities that other Mac developers (and Apple) put into their apps. If the app were improved with this upgrade, I would give this app 5 stars!
Video Calls won't work
I was looking forward to this app in order to not have to be using both my phone and the laptop at the same time. I Have not been able to have a video call. When I call or receive a call, the person is able to see me but I am not able to see the person. Ive even tried calling with my other phone to test if it was an issue with their device and the result was the same, an unresponsive view where I cant see myself or the person I am on a call with but they are able to see me. I tried resetting my mac, refreshing the app settings. Running terminal related commands to kill any background application that might be using the camera and still to no avail. I am not sure what is causing the issue but please look into it for your next updates.
