Hi, how can I install WhatsApp on an HTC phone?


The easiest way to install WhatsApp on your HTC Windows Phone is to open the Windows Phone Store application and search for WhatsApp; from there, you can install the application.

However, if your phone is not on a WiFi or mobile data network, you won't be able to connect to the Windows Phone Store to directly download WhatsApp. You will need to go through a process known as Sideloading, as its name implies, is when you skip past the Windows Phone Store and install an application from another source. To sideload, your device must have an SD card. If it doesn't, you won't be able to sideload the WhatsApp application. Provided that your device does have an SD card, follow the steps below:

How to update my WhatsApp on HTC phone?

Each time I tried to update it, I'm asked for a password for a Microsoft account I know nothing of. I managed to get the app in the first place and don't understand why I can't update It.. I have tried: I have tried contacting Microsoft and they informed me that the email address of the account does not exist, so I'm baffled on how to get past this and just update my WhatsApp version including other apps.
