    Newer vesions of Whatsapp APK (2.18.*) are currently working on BB10.3.3.

    You cant use older versions of Whatsapp as Whatsapp forces you an update.

    The only issue I was facing lately is that after a Whatsapp Call (The call goes through fine), the App would crash as soon as you open the chat with the person you called with. Chats with other contacts continue working fine.

    I tested with many 2.18 Versions.

    The only workaround I found, besides removing and reinstalling the APK was to delete the chat with this specific contact (the one participating in the call). Then it works back again.

    Cheers

    newest releases dont seem to work. I have tried with 2.8.230 and newer ones and video calls dont work.
    You need the armv7 variant,

    Hey guys!
    Very quick one: if I installed Play Store Cobalt-style, can I download WhatsApp via the Play Store? Or must we download the APK and WhatsApp fixer regardless?
    Thank you for your help!

    You don't need Cobalt's stack to do that. Just go to the website at https://www.whatsapp.com/android/ download the android app to your device and install THEN go to BBW and install the WA Fixer, reboot your device, wait 5-10 minutes for the android runtime in your device to restart properly and then test. You will need an sd card in your device.

    note: in order for WA to work you HAVE to have the Fixer regardless where you get the app from.

    Hi! Thank you for your reply.
    I'd like to keep some form of consistency in the way I install Android apps, so my question stands, knowing I already installed the Play Store thanks to Cobalt's files: will it work if I simply download WhatsApp via "his" Play Store? Or MUST I do it the way you suggest? :-)
    No you can just install it with the Playstore then go to BBW for the Fix.

    Sorry I noticed I had misread your first reply, so I deleted my last message just as you were replying to it. It's crystal clear now in any case. I just need to get my hands on an SD card. Thanks again for your help!

    I'm considering switching to a passport. Does whatsapp integrate with the hub like it used to when it was on BlackBerry World? or you can't send messages directly from hub?

    No. not like it was on the native for BB10.
    Hub acts like a shortcut to the Whatsapp App. On hub you get notifications from new Whatsapp Msgs, once you click on them, it opens the Whatsapp App.
    Still very practical to get new msgs notifications on hub.
