        Hi. I have the same problem.

        In my case for some reason the most recent youwave version didn’t run on my computer (the youwave logo just stays there and when I try to do anything it says something like “OS not ready. please wait a few seconds”).

        So I installed youwave 2.0.0. Then I tried downloading whatsapp from It does NOT install, like stated above. However, if I download whatsapp from the android Appstore, it does install, starts normally, lets me configure my phone number, calls me to give me a code, I submit the code, the code is accepted but THEN it says “sorry this version of whatsapp is too old, download the most recent one from”. But that version like I said doesn’t install.

        I can send you snapshots of all these things if you’re interested.

        Thank you for your time.

    Maybe you should try Wheebop. No need for SIM, works from PC, works from any Android powered device… geolocated chats…etc.

    Good grief, I come here expecting intelligent comments and instead we have kids saying things like “plz help!!!!!”

    Whatsapp runs great on youwave, not a single problem installing it……
    Just one little problem……..When you use your own cellphonenumber , whatsapp stops working on your cellphone…..
    So you can choose to let whatsapp work or on youwave or on your phone on one number.
    It works great when you have more then one number……

Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong? “currently unbale to send your message, it will be send when the service becomes available” = the notification I get when trying to send a message, any help would be very much appreciated, been googeling without much succes, even on the whatsapp support forum I seem to be the only one with this issue.. figures :-)

      If you install the software from official site, you won’t see this error message.
      Please search on forum for how to import contacts into YouWave.

    i have installed whatsapp and dropbox on youwave. the contacts(.vcf) are present in the dropbox folder. but when i click import contacts from sd card it does not save any contacts.

    my question is where does the dropbox save these files on youwave?

  40. WhatsApp Fan says:

    I found the a link not using youwave, sorry I like youwave but I thought I would share this other method too. Though $14 isnt a lot they are using another Android Emulator. Ive added the link to my name where it said website. or if you want the website is they are also saying they will do a proper guide on YouWave. I am looking forward to that one as i allready have YouWave installed. I thought their guide was better than what was suggested earlier.

  41. Syifa says:

    Hey, just wondering. I went to visit the youtube page ( and it says that it’s only on a 7-day trial basis. Is there any other way that we can avoid the 7-day trial and keep on using whatsapp on PC even after the 7-days trial? Thank you :)

  42. eric says:

    i like using whatsapp and it good for pc

  43. Thank you, I’ve just been looking for info about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I have came upon till now. However, what about the bottom line? Are you sure in regards to the supply?|What i do not realize is actually how you’re now not really much more neatly-preferred than you might be now. You are so intelligent.

    • admin says:

      In YouWave application, go to View->Online Content->Click on the WhatsApp icon once. Then the WhatsApp app will be downloaded. Then you go to View->Apps and double click the WhatsApp. It will install the application.
