Steps

  1. 1
    In order to get started with WhatsApp on the Galaxy Tab S2, you need to have WhatsApp installed.
    We do have a video tutorial on how to use the Google Play store if you need help installing WhatsApp. If you already have WhatsApp installed, navigate to the WhatsApp icon and give it a single tap to open the program.

    Pressing "OK" will allow you to proceed with the phone number verification process.
    In order for this to work, you do need to have an SMS plan. A text message will be sent to your phone with a code that you need to enter to continue using WhatsApp. For this tutorial, the code I received is "899378". In some cases, WhatsApp may take the code directly from the SMS and complete the process automatically.

Questions and Answers

When I go to install the app it tells me it is not compatible with 'this version'. I have a new Samsung Galaxy S2 tablet?

Is there another version of WhatsApp I should install?. I have tried: Installing WhatsApp Messenger. I think it was caused by: I don't know. Is it because the tablet is NOT a phone?
