Are there any good WhatsApp clients for macOS?

I have tried two:

  1. Official WhatsApp MAS app - tends to get unresponsive if there is a lot of unread messages or sometimes for no apparent reasons at all.
  2. Franz - leaks memory like crazy, 1,5 Gb within a day.

This is probably a long shot, since Facebook does not provide WhatsApp API unless you are a well established / known corporation, so all solutions are basically a wrapper around a web app, but maybe somebody got it right.

PS: paid app is OK.

One can use ChatMate for WhatsApp:

  • non-free
  • has dark mode
