You may have already used WhatsApp on your mobile devices, but there are some exciting new features that come with the full version. Needless to say, you can use this app to send text and share multimedia such as audio, photos, and video content to friends or family.
Video and voice calling capabilities are just among the exciting features you can get with WhatsApp for mobile devices. Just make sure that your device is running at least Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or newer version to install the app on your mobile device.
Part of the new features of the full version APK of WhatsApp is the ability to use it on a tablet. Here’s how you will be able to install WhatsApp on an Android tablet.
- Simply go to your Settings -> Security -> “Unknown Sources” to enable installation of apps from a different source other than Google Play Store. This will also disable your Android security, but be mindful to disable this after successful installation of a particular APK file.
- Search for the WhatsApp APK by launching the Internet browser that you often use on your tablet device. You may find one at androidapksfree.com, which will be part of the search results.
- Then, you have to scroll down and tap the download link for the most recent version of WhatsApp APK. Just make sure to choose the right one as there are many links that are displayed on the page that are just ads.
- The APK will be downloaded in a moment, so pull down the notifications bar after the file has been downloaded and tap on it.
- When you will be prompted that your tablet is not supported, just tap OK.
- Choose the country of residence and valid phone number not used in another WhatsApp account and tap Next.
- The phone number you have given will receive a text message for the verification code. You can also use the phone number for the SIM card inside the tablet if you have one.
- If you are going to use another phone to verify, then select Call Me. Then, you will receive a call in which you will have to enter the 6-digit verification code.
You will then be able to use WhatsApp on your tablet after following the instructions prompting you after sending the verification code.
