  • Vamsi Krishna

    Hello Nany,
    You have problem in downloading WhatsApp in BlueStacks, right? You didn’t exactly mention what your problem is. See, this is just a tip, don’t hit enter after typing Whatsapp in the BlueStacks search bar, just click on search play for whatsapp as I did there. See those steps carefully once again, still if you have trouble, let me know that. Thanks!

    • SHASHI

      sir m facing the same prob to install whatsapp. it said that there is an error “Error retrieving information from server”. any help?

      • Vamsi Krishna

        Hi Shashi, you can get the Whatsapp Apk file and install it with your Bluestacks. It can be downloaded very easily, just download it and install or use the WhatsApp web version. Hope this helps you, thanks.

  • Surendra

    Good article, explained well

  • sachin sampat gorde

    when i start bluestacks on the screen i see initizing process an 1 hour so what i do

    • Srujan

      Hi, if you have a high speed web connection i.e., internet, you can finish off that initializing process within 5 minutes. So maintain that and try again.

  • HanoYs

    Well .. Thank you for the amazing workaround, it really will be useful with some other staff..
    it really works with the WhatsApp, and I’m currently able to use the WhatsApp on my Windows 8.1 HP Pavilion Lab top.

    the catch here is that when I’ve successfully connected to WhatsApp on the pc, it has been disconnected on the mobile, and now I have to re-verify on my smartphone, and when I verified on the phone, it needed re-verify on the pc AGAIN, which i think would be an INFINITE LOOP (verify here – blows there)

    yet again thank you for trying … and it will be useful anyway … and i believe you have nothing to do with this, it is up to whatsapp folks to allow activating an account on a multiple devices

  • Ntamack Bruno

    we need whatsapp in our laptop for now, and for ever.

      Hi Rohan, bluestacks won’t take that much time to initialize. It takes around 8-10 minutes for initialization, so better you check your internet speed is good and try to install after checking that. Thanks!

  • Sonia Jyani

    I experienced a problem during downloading BlueStacks App Player.Actually at first when i downloaded it, when it was in process due to some network problems i cancelled it in halfway and after that when i reinstalled it after completely downloading it from updateminds it is still showing that downloading is in process. and its not getting installed.
    please do help.

    • Vamsi Krishna

      Hi Sonia, after downloading the Bluestacks, during installation you’ll see one more downloading process. Actually that is not usual download but it is the process of downloading gaming data. It takes some time (approx. 20 min) to finish the installation. During the installation, have fast Internet and try to install it once again with patience. Hope this works, thanks.

      • Sonia Jyani

        i am still its not getting installed and again showing the same problem saying the download is still in progress.
        do i need to have a 3g connection for that ?
        after its downloading i waited for half an hour too still its not working ?
        please do help.

        • Vamsi Krishna

          Yes, you must have 3g Internet connection. After getting 3g connection, try once again.

          • Sonia Jyani

            sir i downloaded it using a 3g connection and also waited for around 30 min after dat to ensure its installation but of no use. its still showing downloading is still in proress !

      Hi Majid, you can’t put one SIM card at a time in two devices (your mobile and tablet), right? So, you can use same account in any of the device when you insert the SIM in respective device. With only one SIM, it is not possible. Hope you understand, thanks.
