Whatsapp cannot installed at LG G Pad

I cannot download the whatsapp app on my new LG G Pad as it indicates that "This app is incompatible with no eligible device for app install."  

Does it mean no whatsapp can be installed at the Fido LG G Pad?

Can you help?  Thanks.

WhatsApp is meant to be installed on cellphones because it needs a sim card and phone number to activate your account.

Re: Whatsapp cannot installed at LG G Pad

i have already got the SIM and data plan from fido when I buy this LG G Pad from fido.  The customer service representative told me I could connect my whatsapp to this new LG G Pad with SIM and data plan before I decide to buy it.  But now, I cannot download whatsapp to this LG G Pad.

I don't understand why and I am not sure this is my issue or not.

Thanks for your help to solve this issue and have a nice day.

Re: Whatsapp cannot installed at LG G Pad

The tablet is not a phone that's why it is showing as incompatible from the play store. You can get it to work on a tablet I've done it many times.

You will need to find the WhatsApp apk file that's the install file.

Install it input your cell number and it will send a text with a code to your cell so you can active it.

Just Google WhatsApp apk to find the install file.

Hi @meggiechan

 

The rep should have not told you the app will work on the tablet because Whatsapp do not officially support any tablets as yet. See here.

Re: Whatsapp cannot installed at LG G Pad

Tablet ?, so what

 

I can install What app on Samsung Tablet even with my IPTV, but I've got LG G pad IV presently which can't install the WhatApp, Life 360... I think the Android 7 on LG Pad is something to be concern, Since whe can install and chose the option call me then I can install it. Hopefully that the Android 8 upgrad on LG Pad IV can solve problem. 

If LG can correct the compatibility with their Android version
