whatsapp update on amazon fire phone

SlickForLife 1,719 1,152 August 5, 2016 at 10:16 AM
I have an Amazon fire phone. My husband installed whatsapp for me 2 yrs ago, when it was an available app. It's no longer available through Amazon apps. I am no longer able to get into my whatsapp account, because my whatsapp version is out of date. But how can I update it if it's not an available app?

I found a video that tells you how to bypass it, but I'm not sure if it's legit or not.. does anyone know?

I would rather install google play on side load and forget about amazon app store.its really easy you might need some kind of file explorer to see your download on fire phone.

Thank you. I appreciate it! I downloaded using the second link you posted, and it worked.. it looks like a very old version of whatsapp though, is that normal?

Yes, just an update probably to the backend.
