As you probably already know, KaiOS is the operating system that is used by some of the phones, such as Nokia 8110. Well, we are happy to announce that it finally has the official version of WhatsApp. We have written this article to tell you how to download it to your phone.
WhatsApp on KaiOS
You can finally get the app from the KaiStore, but you need to keep in mind that only the KaiOS devices that have at least 256MB or 512MB of RAM can get it. Also, from the third quarter of the year, the app will be pre-installed on the selected phones. This version of WhatsApp comes with support for both messages and calls, and it also includes end-to-end encryption, just like it does on iOS and Android.
The COO of WhatsApp, Matt Idem, stated that “offering WhatsApp on KaiOS helps bridge the digital divide to connect with friends and family in a simple, secure and reliable way.”
The app was slowly released for some selected KaiOS devices last year. For example, JioPhone. WhatsApp is available on seven KaiOS devices: JioPhone and JioPhone 2, Doro 7060, Cat B35, MTN Smart, Orange Sanza, and Nokia 8110.
Here is how to download WhatsApp for KaiOS phones
The procedure is very simple, and it is similar to that on Android or iOS. First of all, you need to make sure that your phone is compatible. After your phone is good to go, you need to open the KaiStore and search for the app, then download it. Wait for it for a bit, until the entire process is done, then you are good to go. Open the app and enjoy its features.
We know that, by getting this kind of phone, you want to sort of forget about all of these apps, but it might be a good idea to make an exception for this one.
