Updated: How to use any WhatsApp version on Nokia X, Nokia X+ & Nokia XL

Latest Update:

Latest official version of WhatsApp is compatible with Nokia X, Nokia X2, Nokia XL & Nokia X+. No need for workarounds anymore. Click here to install it on your devices.

Whatsapp nokia x

While we have provided you workarounds for using WhatsApp on your Nokia X devices and both work in their own way. Having a chat thread enables one to open WhatsApp from Fastlane and WhatsApp+ is as good as WhatsApp. However, there is one more way to use the original WhatsApp without much hassle.

Here is what you need to do. Install WhatsApp on Nokia X or Nokia XL and go through the full procedure of verification and when it gives you the error of “your device is not supported“, just add the WhatsApp widget to your homescreen.

Press any icon on home screen———> Go to widgets———–>Select the WhatsApp widget.

Once the WhatsApp widget is pinned to homescreen you can tap on top of it to use the WhatsApp. Remember tapping on icon will still give you “your device is not supported error”.

      Step by Step: Getting WhatsApp on your Nokia X & Nokia XL,

      1) Download older version of WhatsApp. You can download and try version 2.11.205 from here

      https://www.mediafire.com/?9z0z93nki0hv2c9

      2) Install WhatsApp & Clear app data (go to settings > apps > WhatsApp > clear data)

      3) Change date to 3rd June 2014 (go to settings > Date and time > uncheck “automatic update of time”),

      4) Reboot the phone and you should be able to register and use WhatsApp. Only that your messages will be backdated.

      5) Uninstall Whatsapp now

      6) Set time to present date

      7) Install WhatsApp Plus from here

        Hi
        I’ve tried everything whatsapp doesnt ask for registration shows error,n whatsapp plus shows verification error.What to do 🙁

        • Just download whatsapp from AppEggs market, but that is old version of whats app. If you have already installed whatsapp, uninstall it from your phone and install Appeggs market and then download and install whatspp then it ll tell u that your apk is obsolete and your version has expired on (date) so set a date before that date in (date and time)settings in your phone and continue sms verification after which whatsapp will work.. but then to have the current date in your phone, uninstall whats app., set the current date in your phone and install whatsapp+. It will ask for mobile number, just enter it. It will accept. Happy whatsapping…!

      • rajat

      • You are a life saver!

  • saurav

    open a whatsapp message from home screen….when it comes as a notification…from there if opened it won’t give that error…then create a shortcut of any of your contacts on the home screen….everytime you can access your whatsapp from that shortcut

    Kamal, there’s a new solution for WhatsApp on the Nokia X platform.

    It’s called Disa, and it’s a third party WhatsApp client. Give it a try, it works well on my Android phone.

  • PL

    I was able to mount the whatsapp widget on the Nokia XL home screen but nothing works beyond that. If i click the widget it says device not supported and if I don’t it won’t work until its registered….anyone please suggest I am really loosing my faith in Nokia…I am using Nokia phones from past 10 years and never saw such problems.

    • Kamal

      Click on top of the widget and it should work.

      • PL

        same thing..it says, device not supported. It has to be registered initially before it could work on widget..isn’t it..

        • Kamal

          I am bit surprised, as in my case it lets me register easily. Try the 1Mobile market version and see whether you can register, or else try whatsapp plus.

          • PL

            Naah…it doesn’t work..may be I am not lucky enough. Have been trying from past 3 days and downloaded from every market but it doesn’t work. Would u mind sharing ur contact so that we can talk and may resolve.

  • Chandu

  • ahmed

    HI HI all i have select widgets its open but when i go to chat it suddenly exit please help how i can chat

  • Not work for me. I think this way only work for who have a WhatsApp account. If you have to register, doesn’t work. :/
    Sorry my bad english, I’m brazilian. I click on the top of the widget and nothing (your device is not supported), on the blank and nothing, on the icon and nothing, I try everything and nothing, just “your device is not supported”. ):

    • I made it! Just downloaded Whatsapp by Yandex.Store, then, when I openned the Whatsapp I got the register screen, after register, the message “your device is not supported” appear, but, when I openned the Whatsapp by the Widget it work.
      Again, sorry my bad english, I just want to share the methody with everyone because some people had the same problem then I. (I just raped the english language now, sorry kkkk)

  • D

    • Kamal

      Can u post the screenshot of it not working?

  • Ravi

    its very ridiculous. if you go to widgets you can able to select only whatsapp contacts. then you can make one whatsapp contact as a widget. then what about other…this is not the correct way.

    • Kamal

      Why do u want to select contacts widget? Select the big whatsapp widget and it works like charm.

      • Sarwar Chowdhury

        big whatsapp widget not found in screen

        • Kamal

          Seems, everyone else is able to see whatsapp widget 😛

          • hitesh

            I cant even go through the registration process, its not moving forward, and after connecting fot hours, it says ” no net connection, reboot the phone” 🙁

      • Pankaj Lakhani

        Hey guys, gud newz for all..I tried few steps nd it worked..follow them as I m stating below….
        1. Uninstall any whatsapp app version frm ur phone.
        2. Download nd install whatsapp mesenger. It will let u complete registration process..bt it will stil giv u same not supported message. Don’t worry nd try chatting wid any of ur friends in ur contact list by opening their contact. 3. Once done, uninstall whatsapp messenger app nd download whatsapp plus nd install.
        4. It won’t ask for registration but will take around 15 to 20 min for initializing service depending upon your internet connection.
        5. Once completed, you’re good to go nd will b able to access whatsapp from direct app or contacts or widget.
