Video tutorial: Using WhatsApp on Nokia X, Nokia X+ & Nokia XL


Latest: Try this tutorial for getting WhatsApp Plus working on your devices (If nothing else works)

Nokia X Whatsapp

Here is the video tutorial covering two of successful workarounds for being able to use WhatsApp on Nokia X range of devices. The first workaround is what we have covered in our earlier article about pinning WhatsApp widget on home screen and that works perfectly on my Nokia XL.

The second workaround is about using WhatsApp Plus instead of trying to make WhatsApp work.

All you need to do is to first,

Install WhatsApp———-> Register your number with WhatsApp—————> Uninstall


Install WhatsApp Plus from the link here and it will pick your backup, chats etc from uninstalled WhatsApp.

    Nokia is the worst company I have ever experienced……. Nokia X is not compatible with Watsapp’s new version. this company loots every one. even mobile worth Rs.4000 has compatibility to have watsapp but this Fu***ng Nokia X2 has nothing to work with it…………. Never purchase Nokia if you want to be happy then……….. I am completely frustrated… I have drowned my Money by purchasing Nokia..

  • LP

    Thank Kamal. I’ve used a Lumia 520 for almost a year because the telco offered it free with a contract. Based on my experience with the 520, I thought Nokia was on the right track back in the phone market. So I bought a Nokia XL but have had a miserable experience for an entire week because I could not install WhatsApp. Nokia support on fB was not helpful either.

    Your post of July 2 has solved my nightmare. I’ve got WA up and running again. Thanks a million. I thought I had bought a brick of a white elephant.

    By the way, why has Nokia failed to address this installation problem of a widely used app?

  • bhabatosh paramanik

    in my case , i have installed whatsapp + and it was running, but when i want to change my number in whatsapp to register then after it is not working.. rather it is showing that your client has been modified try downloading from googleplay.. soo what i will do in my case. can you please reply me in my email please,, i am begging [email protected].
