How to install WhatsApp on Huawei from Play Store
If your smartphone Huawei is equipped with Google Mobile Services (GMS), you can easily download WhatsApp through Play Store, that is the virtual and official Android store where you can find and install applications for this operating system.
All you need to do to install WhatsApp on Huawei is to start the first Play Store. You can find the icon of this app (the one with the colored triangle upside down) on the home screen or in the drawer: therefore, tap on it to start the Android virtual store.
I warn you that, to be able to download an app from the Play Store, you must necessarily have your smartphone connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or the data network of the SIM. Therefore, if you want to make sure that your Huawei mobile phone is actually connected to the Network, I recommend that you consult what I have explained to you in this guide of mine dedicated to the subject.
Furthermore, to install an app it is also necessary to have logged into the Play Store with a Google account: if you have already associated a Google account to your smartphone at the time of the initial configuration, then the latter will be used. Alternatively, you will need to connect one first: I told you about it in detail in this guide of mine.
On the main screen of the Play Store, then use the search bar at the top to type the term "WhatsApp" and then press onicona della lens d'ingrandimento on the virtual keyboard to search.
The app you are looking for is called WhatsApp Messenger and is developed by WhatsApp Inc. I tell you this because it is also available WhatsApp Business: this is a version of WhatsApp intended for companies, useful for the latter to be contacted by their customers: I told you about it in an ad hoc tutorial, but at the moment I don't think it is of interest to you.
So back to us, tap onWhatsApp icon present in the search results, to access the description of the application. In case you want to speed up this procedure, reach this link from your Huawei smartphone, in order to directly open the WhatsApp Messenger on the Play Store.
After reaching the section on WhatsApp Messenger on the Play Store, press the button Download, to start downloading and installing the app. If a message appears stating that you need to complete your profile and add a valid payment method, click Next / Continue e Ignore, to skip the step: WhatsApp is 100% free.
