Okay but could be better

I was enjoying using the Desktop version of this app, but your most recent update is not working. It just hangs and doesn't load, and my app store is perpetually showing me that I have one update that can't be installed. I tried deleting WhatsApp thinking I could reinstall the app and start from scratch, but that's not working either. It still shows an update and now I can't reinstall it on my MacBook and I can't update it either cause there's nothing on my computer to update. Hope you can fix this problem soon.
UPDATE: I no longer see an "Update" notification on the app page, now I see an install icon, but the app won't install. It just hangs. When are you going to fix this? Your app pushes out more updates than any other app on my computer, and I don't see substantive differences from update to update.
Also, why not make it possible to videochat from the computer with your app. That would be a great feature.

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.
