Is there any way I can run WhatsApp on Fedora? There are Android emulators like BlueStackApps for Windows and Mac, but I haven't found one for Fedora or Ubuntu.

Is there any such that will allow me to run Android application like WhatsApp on Fedora ?

Note: I am looking for answers other than recommending android emulator that is part of the SDk

You can run things through the Android emulator, part of the Android SDK (software development kit).

This provides a virtual device which does allow you to run quite a lot of Android applications though it may struggle with some of the more hardware-dependent things (3D, Phone calls, GPS, SMS, etc)

Here's a guide on getting it set up:


A detailed SDK install guide can be found here:

can it be other than android emulator part of SDK. I guess that emulator is not abstracted for this. –  Suhail Gupta Aug 9 '12 at 14:16
