How to fix your device is not supported for Whats App error in Nokia X and XL devices

After the recent update offered by Nokia which was on June 8th there has been a problem of App not being supported while launching like Whats App users were not able to launch the App by tapping on the Icon but were able to open the app by clicking on the notifications received.
So if you are facing the same problem here are the two possible solutions to get rid of this problem.

Use Notifications to Launch the app:
If you are getting the Error or “Sorry, your device not supported” for WhatsApp then you cannot launch the app by tapping on the icon as it is a bug in the new update which is preventing this.

You can launch the app by tapping on the Notifications which were received from friends messaging you and launch the app and make sure that you do not close the app and keep it running in the background so that you can use it when ever you wish to.
Closing the App will not let you use launch it again and you will be getting the same error once again until you get a notification which can let you use the app.

Just Slide your Home Screen to the left side which will show you the notifications or Whatsapp messages which were sent to you and tap on it to launch Whats App and make sure that you are not closing this application, if you close it the same error will come and you have to wait for a message to use the application.

Thanks OP but sometimes it's good to make tutorials short and straight to point.

Meanwhile checkout Whatsapp Login on PC with less complex and quicker process. In no time, you'll be able to access WhatsApp on your PC
