WhatsApp Desktop Coming to WIndows Store

One of the reasons I liked Google Hangouts so much is that it has a desktop component that allows me to communicate with people via SMS whether I'm on my phone or PC. Google is killing this service as they think nobody really wants it anyhow. WhatsApp realized that people actually do, and they are making a move to put their service on the desktop via the Windows Store. It's not quite as convenient, but it's a nice touch. I guess I'll be moving to WhatsApp when Google finally kills the service.

The app appears to be a straight conversion of the currently available WhatsApp Desktop app for Windows using the Desktop Bridge. According to Aggiornamenti Lumia, the app stipulates that your PC must be running at least the Anniversary Update, and you will need to connect it to your mobile phone to mirror messages.
