[Works] Install WhatsApp on Nokia X, X2 and XL

Update: WhatsApp now officially supports Nokia X Series and hence the tutorial below has been modified accordingly.

How to Install WhatsApp on Nokia X, X+, X2 and XL

On 2nd September 2014, WhatsApp released an update (version 2.11.371) which directly supports the Nokia X series devices. I’ve personally tried it on the Nokia X2 and it worked pretty smooth.

  1. On your phone, go to settings> security and check the box in front of Unknown Sources.
  2. Click here to download the latest version of WhatsApp on your Nokia X device. Wait for the download to finish (you can check the download progress in the Fastlane by swiping right from the homescreen).
  3. When the download finishes, tap on the downloaded WhatsApp.apk file to begin the installation.
  4. When installed, just open WhatsApp and complete the verification.
  5. Start using WhatsApp on your Nokia X, X+ and XL.

Finally it is moment of rejoice for the Nokia X users as there isn’t a need of workarounds anymore and you can install WhatsApp normally on your Nokia X, X+, XL and X2.

Please comment below if it works for you or not. Your feedback will help others :)

Thanks Elton for updating us. Cheers.

      Looks like the Xpress Browser is not working. Can you try using any other download manager to complete the APK download? Say UC Browser?

    I have downloaded whatsapp but can’t verify my phone number on nokia x2. How do I do dis? I get the response “Your client has been changed. Get google play services. Pls jelp me sort this out.

    • Narender Singh May 30, 2015 at 10:35 pm #

      Are you running the latest version of Play Services?

      • Arisa May 31, 2015 at 3:04 am #

        Nokia X2 android phone uses a Windows OS, which does not support Google Play Services…unless I am wrong. I guess that’s why I keep getting that response. I had whatsapp on my phone before. But, when I downloaded the update, I couldn’t verify my phone number on the new update. Please help. Thanks

        • Narender Singh May 31, 2015 at 8:30 am #

          Actually Google Play Services were added to the phone via a software update. And it doesn’t use Windows. It is Android, skinned to be like Windows Phone. Try installing a store like 1Mobile and see if it shows update for Google Play Services. Also, is your phone software updated to the latest?
