App Store

Or you can download .dmg from release page.

So on, you can install from Homebrew:

$ brew update
$ brew install --cask whalebird

Thanks to @singingwolfboy for adding it to homebrew-cask.


There are some packages in release page, for example .deb, .rpm and .AppImage. If you do not want to use the package manager, please download .tar.bz2 file and decompress it.

If you are using snap, please install from snapcraft.io.

$ sudo snap install whalebird

If you are using flatpak, please install from flathub.org.

$ flatpak install social.whalebird.WhalebirdDesktop

Or you can install from Arch User Repository.

$ yay -S whalebird


Windows Store

We prepared winget package and .exe files, but we don't recommend these ways. Because these binary is not code signed, so you will get warnings when you launch. Only Windows Store version is signed, so please use it.

$ winget show "Whalebird" --versions


If you can speak multiple languages, could you please help with translation in Crowdin?

Or if you want add new language, please create an issue. I will add it.


We'd love you to contribute to Whalebird.
