    Question: How can I install the Android Version of Whatsapp on my passport? If i use the apk provided from the playstore, i get a google services error. If i use cobalts services patcher, the app cant give me a registration call and then tells me that there is something wrong with my app. Please help, as i do not know how to proceed. I dont wanna get some Junk, i wanna keep my passport.

    You do not need Cobalt's service patcher. Just install as usual from the Google Play Store. If it asks for Google Play Service, just skip or cancel for that particular part and proceed with installation. The Google Play Service is optional and use only to save your chat history to Google Drive--which you don't need since it can save just as well to the Whatsapp's server.

    I have installed this successfully on my Passport and have been running it for almost a week now with no problem. At all. If I can do it, you should, too.

    [for those new to this]

    Therefore, you'll need to install it on your BB10 device, here's how : http://forums.crackberry.com/android...ctions-985344/

    Alternatively, you can use a third party APK download store like 1mobile, but please note this might result in less trustable APKs download (unlikely on very popular ones, TBH, but be careful with unknown ones ... my 2 cents)

    Hi there guys

    Sorry to be a bother but on my Z10 I can't upload a photo through my whatsapp apk.

    It works beautifully the only problem is the uploading of photos fails through the android apk on my z10.

    I skipped Google services so I could continue with the installation but it is no working 100% flawlessly as so features dont work

    If anybody can help me out I would be extremely grateful as I don't want to buy a new phone and hear whatsapp is dropping support for BlackBerry is 10 at the end of this year sadly. But the android app side loading should still work just fine

    Thank you very much

    Hey hi there BlackZ10 thank you for the response!
    I have version 2.16.61 installed.

    I side loaded it and downloaded from the internet but it won't upload or send a photo.

    Everything else works fine except the send images / photos option.

    Unfortunately photos don't work and really want photos to work.

    I know I can install whatsapp from the App World but it will become obsolete at the end of this year so want my side load apk to be working properly.

    Don't mind getting my hands a bit dirty to get it to work just don't really know how or why it doesn't work.

    Thank you very much by the way

    Ahh I made a response to this thread with pictures in it but it hasn't posted :/

    Well I installed apk version 2.16.61 so I don't understand why it doesn't have photo support.

    Thank you so much BlackZ10!

    I made a much better response than this with screenshots explaining but it didn't post or something - is it because I am very new to the forums maybe for evaluation?

    Thank you for trying to help

    ...I do not understand, why the android version of whatsapp should not work (except posting media directly over whatsapp....) in 2017! Maybe somebody could explain this...

    I actually use the android version of whatsapp on my Q10. Of course I can not post any media but if I sent uploaded "shared links" for example from google-photos, the receiver will be able to see all media over these shared links.

    I think this should work as long as android-whatsapp is compatible to android version 4.3.

    Correct, the android version should also work in 2017.

    Regarding the media-problem:
    there is an app which fixes this called WAA Fixer and can be downloaded from the BlackBerry Beta Zone

    Do you get push notifications for Android version Whatsapp on BB10 ?

    You get only one notification in the hub, if you received one or more messages. LED-notification does not work too.

    I think android whatsapp integration will develop and get better in 2017. Right now it's without problems possible to send text messages and with WAA Fixer you are able to send media too.

    Personal contacts will not all be shown in android whatsapp. But it's possible to save them again. All in all I don't have that much problems with the android version for my use case (just receiving and sending informations in groups).

    I'm quite happy with it: I can use my Q10 some more years.

    I have the Android version loaded to see how well it works. Overall, it is quite good... but I am having trouble using the group messaging - it doesn't seem to send or receive anything from there. Should I try to re-install or is this a known problem?

    Hmm... at first I thought that it was just that I tried to send a picture along with my message but it seems that regular messages don't go through either...

    I don't have this installation problem. But I don't know what I did in a different way. Maybe you should push the backup button in the OS10-Version of Whatsapp before installing it, maybe not...
