      Click on the BlueStacks icon in the Windows systray, then click on “Report Problem” to send log files for analysis, after sometime they will send you the updated file. it will resolve the issue. Also go to the blue stack help forum.. They will help you.

      check if the number is right and donot put any 0’s if there are in the starting of your mobile number
      also reboot your BlueStacks and check if it is the latest version of whatsapp or not

    I don’t get it, has Whatsapp changed the verification procedure? Because I cannot get it to work using these instructions…
    After I provide country code and phone number into WA running in Bluestacks on my Win7 machine, I receive the SMS on my phone which says: “WhatsApp code 357-235″.
    But I don’t see any way for me to type that code into the WA in Bluestacks.
    The WA on Bluestack just times out after a few minutes and says verification failed.

      I think you might be using an old version of WA or Blue stacks, Please Check for the updates, if available then update and then run WA.

      Thanks

        Thank you.
        I eventually did get a button in the WA in Bluestacks for verification by phone.
        So I got a robotic call on my cell-phone that spoke the code number, which I entered into the WA in Bluestacks, and it worked.

        The main problem, however, is that the phonebook in Bluestacks doesn’t seem to support GoogleSync.

      Dhanesh bluestacks is same like an android phone, if you have enabled auto update while installing from google play then it will automatically update your Whats app. otherwise you have to do it manually.

      Hi,
      You have to install it, how you do it on android phone, I mean you have to download and install What’s App on bluestacks. If it’s not working please check your internet or the RAM you have provided to your emulator.
      Please let me know if your problem is solved. Keep Visiting BetaTutorials.com

      I found Bluestacks doesn’t support Enter key.. However some applications like “whatapp” can send a msg by enter key. Open whatapp > click on show menu icon (left hand side) > click settings>chat preference > tick on topmost line ..

      Enjoy sending msgs by pressing enter key..
      But the same is not available in VIBER

      Hi ankur,

      Click on the settings menu, there you will find contacts option click to open that menu, then again click on the menu button and select add contact/new contact option and provide the required information to add contacts.

      Note: you will find menu button on the bottom left side of bluestacks, after the arrow/back button.

    Hi.
    Hoping for a little advice please. I’ve been usining WhatsApp through Bluestacks on my laptop for some time now, but after an update a while ago I stopped receiving the on-screen notifications that used to let me know when I’d received a new message. It was useful and very convenient when you had your audio muted. It disappeared suddenly, directly after the update which gave us the facility to press the enter key to send messages some months ago. Was this planned by the coders and meant to happen? Or did something go awry on my update which made it disappear somehow? I would have much preferred the onscreen new message notification than to have the enter key message sending facility. Is there a way I can get the onscreen notifications back? My WhatsApp has also taken to crashing and closing itself randomly quite often in the last few months too. It has just happend again which prompted me to check for a solution to this and hopefully to also solve the lack of visible notifications

    I’m hoping somebody can advise on this.

    Thanks in advance
    Jan.

      Please Can your specify the RAM of your laptop, it mostly occurs when you have less memory in your system. or you can try some anti virus scan, if you have some virus in your system, if nothing works, then try reinstalling the bluestacks in your system and then WhatsApp.

      For notifications check the settings, there must be wrong with your whatsapp’s settings
