I didn't even know there was a desktop version of Whatsapp. But you can just use the online web.whatsapp.com in whatever browser you want and get a big screen desktop version of Whatapp, without the out of date Chromium build. That allows you to view, reply to and send messages. What does the desktop version offer extra on top of that?
