    To be honest, I don't really see it currently possible, since a phone doesn't have push notifications. Without that feature, it would drain the battery very quickly.

    I can't get into any details, but don't lose your hope with WhatsApp. And regarding push notifications, I believe it does have them: https://developer.kaiostech.com/first-app/using-push-notifications


    But, as I'm curious about this I'll try them to see if they work and how do they work.

    So for the Indian users with a JioPhone: Did you get Whatsapp? Actually it should be already on 15. August in the store.

    @Jannis is correct. Jio phones should of got Whatsapp on 15 August. Can anyone verify if this has happened.

    I have googled a bit and it seems its still not available for the JioPhone. just imagine the users of the phone buying it at release, and one month later WhatsApp is still not available.
  • Looks like Jio Phone just announced they have WhatsApp in there store from today.

    Yes, you are right concerning the JioPhone . But I have also read some worrisome news like this one:"KaiOS is available on a handful of other devices, including ones from Alcatel and HMD Global (Nokia), but it’s not entirely clear whether WhatsApp will be made available on those devices at some point in the future."

    It should be available because of the Tweets by Juho Sarvikas put out at the time of the initial announcement of the Jiophone 2 and WhatsApp.

    Keith, Nokia really don't seem to care much about the Nokia 8110 and the user. Rather they focus on the Android phones. So I would put no value to what a Nokia employee tweets.

    We'll have to wait and see. We should also be asking KaiOS the same question. Aren't they responsible what goes in the KaiOS store?

    I wait also for whatsapp!! But, PLEASE, resolve the basic problem of this phone, writing sms is REALLY TERRIBLE! Annoy you to the fullest! I write this because I care about this phone, I love Nokia! Classic phones are the real deal.

    Is it only the Kaios Jio phones that got Whatsapp? If so KaiOS will never grow. Doro, Cat, Alcatel and Nokia KaiOS phones are pointless.
  • Need so many apps but still insufficient

    Have asked KaiOS about the availability of WhatsApp on all KaiOS phones and they replied that it is a joint effort with OEMs. They never said it was coming. Not available on the Cat B35 phone either. Doro 6050 claim it is available on websites but refuse to answer my direct question. Until I get WhatsApp on my 8110 I will just keep it in a drawer. Started using a Nokia 1 for the Same price. Everything much better except battery life. WhatsApp works well.
