  • Whatsapp is well-known for its fast and free service.

    • Bluestacks offers an option to install apps from their .apk files, so all you need to do is to go to Whatsapp’s website and download the .apk file, and then open it like any other application. Bluestacks will automatically show the “Installing apk” dialogue box and the app will be installed. In case the file is not opened with bluestacks right-click on the file and in the open with menu select bluestacks. The app should be installed by following these steps.
