WhatsApp Install and Download Available on the Nokia N8


Needless to say, WhatsApp is one of the most popular and useful instant messaging apps in the world. There are a lot of people that run it on their mobile devices, so it came as a bit of a shock when WhatsApp announced that it will be cutting support for various BlackBerry and Nokia devices, as well as all Android devices running 2.2 or older. This is perfectly understandable, especially when considering that all these aforementioned devices and OS versions are more than outdated.

One older Nokia device that still seems to be ok for WhatsApp is the Nokia N8. If you check the official WhatsApp supported device list, Nokia N8 will be there under the Symbian OS category. In fact, the Nokia N8 was the first device to ever run the Symbian OS, after Nokia smartphones have had quite disastrous fates until then. Not that Symbian’s a gem, but it’s better than Windows Mobile for sure.

So, if you still can install WhatsApp on your Nokia N8, keep reading to find out how to do that. There are two main ways.

Through the Nokia App

You can install WhatsApp on your Nokia N8 through the Nokia app. Just open the Store app, then type ‘WhatsApp’ into the search bar. Tap on the icon to install the app, then follow the prompts that will appear. And that’s it. Pretty easy, right?

Through the Official Website

You can also install WhatsApp on your Nokia N8 by using the official website. Just open up your browser, then type the following URL into the bar: Then press on the ‘Download Now’ button on the page, once it has loaded of course. Again, follow the prompts and complete the installation. This way is easy as well, so you shouldn’t have a problem.
