How to use WhatsApp on Fire Tablet

WhatsApp is a messaging app that allows you to send messages, photos, videos, and even voice recordings, as well as make voice and video calls over the Internet for free. Although WhatsApp can be downloaded to all iOS devices, as well as most Android devices, it’s still not available in the Amazon app store for the Amazon Fire Tablet.

However, you can still use the WhatsApp app on your Amazon Fire Tablet, but you have to install it first.

Well, here’s how to install and use WhatsApp on your Amazon Fire Tablet.

How to install WhatsApp on Amazon Fire Tablet

If you want to install WhatsApp on your Amazon Fire Tablet, you need to enable the function of installing apps from unknown sources on your tablet. This is because, as mentioned earlier, there’s no official WhatsApp app in the Amazon App Store. So, if you want to allow “Unknown Sources” installations on your Amazon Fire Tablet, you have to follow these steps:

  • First of all, go to the “Settings” menu.
  • Then, scroll down and tap on the “Security and Privacy” tab.
  • Enable the “Apps from Unknown Sources” option and tap “OK” to confirm.

If you want to do this on Fire OS 4.0 (2012 and earlier), follow these steps:

  • Navigate tp the “Settings” menu.
  • Select “Device”.
  • After that, select “Allow Installation of Applications”.

Your Fire Tablet is then ready to install WhatsApp or other third-party apps. Download and install the latest version of WhatsApp directly from their website:

  • Tap on the “Download Now” button.
  • Wait a few seconds for the download to complete.
  • Then, open and install the file.

You may need to install WhatsApp a second time if a confirmation prompt appears.

How to access your WhatsApp account on Amazon Fire Tablet

If you want to access your WhatsApp account on Amazon Fire Tablet, you have to follow these steps:

  • At first, open WhatsApp on your tablet.
  • Then, tap on the “Agree and Continue” button to accept the terms and privacy policy.
  • After that, tap “Continue” in the pop-up window to confirm.
  • Select “Allow” to grant access to your device.
  • Enter your phone number and “OK” to confirm.
  • Next, enter the verification code that will be sent to you via SMS.

  • WhatsApp will only allow you to use the same phone number on one device at a time.
  • If necessary, you can reactivate WhatsApp between your phone and your tablet.
  • WhatsApp on your mobile device will be deactivated if you use the same phone number as your Fire Tablet.
