Tip:- If you add Gmail, you won’t have to add Hangouts separately as the former displays a Hangouts option on itself.

By default, Franz runs in the background so that, you will never miss any important message. You can exit it completely if you want. Moreover, it is possible to set it not to run in the background. You need to access the settings of Franz for that.

Though Franz is in beta stage right now, I didn’t notice any glitches with it. So, you can reliably use it. They have made it clear on their website that the software doesn’t store or learn the messages you send. Means you have nothing to worry about your privacy as well.

Note:- You have to connect your mobile to the same Wi-Fi network as your computers in order to use WhatsApp on Franz. The principle is the same as that of WhatsApp web.
