Earlier this year, Facebook acquired WhatsApp for 19 billion dollars and this move took many people by surprise. Mark Zuckerberg said that WhatsApp’s services are valuable as the application connects with 1 billion of people. Whether we like it or not, we believe that Mark Zuckerberg made a great deal buying WhatsApp and we will probably notice that this application will be more and more used by a lot of smartphone users.
WhatsApp is an application which allows you to send unlimited messages, videos, photos, music just with a few taps and a 3G or Wi-Fi internet connection. While you will most likely not have any problems installing it on your smartphone, you might struggle to install it on your Wi-Fi tablet, since not all tablets feature a SIM card slot. This is why today we’re going tell you how to install WhatsApp on your Wi-Fi tablet.
In order to install WhatsApp on your Wi-Fi tablet you will need:
– a phone with a SIM card, it doesn’t have to be a smartphone or anything fancy, if it can receive SMS texts and calls, it’s perfect
– WhatsApp APK for Android from WhatsApp website
Download the APK file on your tablet and install it. In case the installation is blocked, you will have to allow unknown sources on your tablet. After you install WhatsApp on your tablet, you will be asked to select your country and specify your phone number to get verified. You will use the number you have on your phone and WhatsApp will start verifying the number you’ve inserted. You will get a call from WhatsApp and a robot will tell you the code, listen to it and write it on your WhatsApp. In case the call fails, verify it again and you should receive a text message this time with the verification code.
Once you’ve got the code, insert it on your WhatsApp and you have now WhatsApp installed on your Wi-Fi tablet!
This is a great thing if you have an Android Wi-Fi tablet, but you don’t have a smartphone yet and you want to use your WhatsApp to get in touch with your friends.
