As we have said the company won’t allow you to downgrade messaging app once you upgrade it. Fortunately, you can download and install the older version of WhatsApp from a third party source. Now let us just discuss the steps to successfully installing the messaging app:
First of all, go to Settings > Security and toggle the switch “on” for Unknown Sources, now you will be able to install apps from third-party sources.
A popup will show up on screen prompting you about the risk of installing apps from third-party sources. I want to prompt you also to tap Ok on your own risk.
Now open WhatsApp and go to Settings > Chats > Chat Backup and create a backup of all your chatting history. It might take some time.
Then uninstall the WhatsApp in your Application Manager.
Open any of your browsers and go to this link. According to us, the WhatsApp v2.17.77 would be a decent choice if you want to rollback. Look for the same version APK file and download it.
After the download, completion goes to the Download folder in File Manager and tap on the WhatsApp APK file that you just downloaded. On next screen tap on Install button, aand installation will begin.
After the installation, run the app, accept the Terms & C0nditions, verify the contact number, restore the backup and done.
