This program has been discussed a number of times here on the site and not in a very positive light. Anyway a Windows client is now available but there are plenty of reasons to hesitate.

EDIT: The desktop version of the program requires that it is first installed on your phone.

You don't need a dedicated client. All those clients are just Chromium wrappers anyway (Electron et. al).

Use your browser and go straight to web.whatsapp.com. I don't use Whatsapp personally though.
is it stealth? ;)

WABetaInfo
if you want to know a preview of the latest changes that will be brought to WhatsApps, go to the site: www.wabetainfo.com
(WhatsApp Beta Info)

This site, despite being only for betas, has actually become the privileged interlocutor by the development team of WhatsApp and Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook chief executive officer).
site menu:
• Android
• IOS
• TestFlight (infos about WhatsApp on his Discord server since March 1, 2018)
• Updates
• Terms of Service
• Disclaimer
• About

From About
What is WABetaInfo?
WABetaInfo (also called WBI) was founded in January 15, 2016 on Twitter to independently announce news about WhatsApp, their updates and new features.
As time passes, WABetaInfo has gained reliability: its name is all over the Internet and he started to fight against fake news around WhatsApp.
To improve the information service, WABetaInfo created this website in June 3, 2017, offering a better service with detailed news, finally.
In March 1, 2018, WABetaInfo created a Discord server to be near the community, including many other useful services.
Today, the Discord server has about 10,000 members, WABetaInfo has more than 80,000 followers on Twitter and it's considered the main news portal about WhatsApp.
In June 3, 2021, exactly 4 years after opening the website (that was a weird concidence!), Mark Zuckerberg and Will Cathcart https://www.ted.com/speakers/will_cathcart contacted WABetaInfo on WhatsApp, providing details about new features to come on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp has retweeted the news on their official Twitter profile the same day, in order to show our interview was real, and Will Cathcart thanked me quoting the news. This experience was amazing.
WABetaInfo Twitter profile: https://twitter.com/WABetaInfo

Even Google looks at this site when it has to put updates on his Google Play Store (Android).
Ex.
WhatsApp beta for Android 2.21.12.17 on Google Play after only two days that it appeared on WABetaInfo.

From the about page:

I strongly recommend using any other messaging program apart from pure SMS. Ideally Telegram (in database) or Signal, but here's a few others.
