If you have any blackberry device running the version 10 of the Blackberry OS or less then chances are, you can not use the WhatsApp app on your device. But I will be showing how to bypass that restriction to install WhatsApp on Blackberry 10 devices.
WhatsApp discontinued their support for the Blackberry OS 10 and below sometime last year. This move by WhatsApp has seen its disgruntled users on the Blackberry OS looking for other ways to still use the WhatsApp application on their device. Some blackberry 10 users saw this as a deal breaker and have already cut their loss and sold their phones. While some other have moved over to the Android OS or iOS.
Some are still holding on to their devices and if you among those that have not sold or Abandoned your blackberry os 10 device then there is still a way for you to use WhatsApp on your device again. The Blackberry OS 10 on your device has the capability to not only accept .apk files but also run them like androids would.
If you do not know, .apk files are the traditional android application packages. Just .jar on our beloved S40, S60 and Symbian devices way back. This makes blackberry 10 devices capable of running any app or game that the Android would. Most importantly it can run the Android version of WhatsApp. You can also download the google play store for android on your Blackberry 10 devices, having access to a lot of Android applications at your fingertips.
We will be showing you how that can be achieved with some few easy steps.
