Then, download the WhatsAppGio APK file from the internet (search for it on Google) and enable the “Unknown Sources” option by going to Settings->Security or Settings->Applications (by enabling this option, you will be able to install APK files that you’ve downloaded from the internet – such as the WhatsAppGio APK).
