Use WhatsApp with a landline phone

To use WhatsApp with a landline number, you need to download WhatsApp Business, the version of App for small businesses to more easily stay in touch with their customers. This version (which is not the conventional one) is the one that allows us to configure the fixed telephone number.

First download and install the application by clicking the green button above, then install it. Once you’ve done that, open it up and click Agree and continue:

And don’t let its name fool you: while it’s aimed at businesses, it can be used by anyone, and developers won’t control whether every download is from a company either.
