How to download and install WhatsApp for Nokia Asha 200 is one of the most frequent questions I have been receiving of recent after I made a post on how to download whatsapp for nokia s40 java phones. Which I have found a bit difficult to address cos WhatsApp is somehow reluctant in supporting the popular Nokia Nokia Asha 200 (No officially supported WhatsApp for Nokia Asha 200).
Well, my answer all these while has been “wait for WhatsApp next updates to see if your phone model will be included. Though, I’m aware that WhatsApp recently made an update which included some Nokia s40 phones like Nokia X2-00, Nokia Asha 302, Nokia Asha 306 and Nokia Asha 311 but still,
Nokia Asha 200 was left out in the update for some reasons best known to the WhatsApp company, A WhatsApp representative stated a bit of it in this my discussion with them.
Left for me, I will choose Tecno N3 dual SIM smartphone against Nokia 200. Cos you can get WhatsApp for Tecno N3 Android Phone. Making WhatsApp work on Tecno N3
A Reply to my Question from WhatsApp Representative
Hi Azubuike, The Nokia Asha 200 is not a supported device for WhatsApp messenger. WhatsApp uses your phone number to identify your account and dual SIMs presents significant difficulty to this feature. There are also no background services that allow WhatsApp to receive messages while your phone is not actively being used. Thus, the Nokia Asha 200 is not supported for WhatsApp. You can check to see which Nokia phones are supported here. If your device is not listed, it is not supported and will not be able to run WhatsApp. Sadly, If your device is unsupported, we cannot comment on any future development plans. -Ana.
