WhatsApp is not working / "works with Google Chrome 36+" / stuck on Chrome update page


(Piero Bellomo) #43

I was stuck before I had the chance to login and update, but I found a workaround
Hovering on the whatsapp icon a pane appears: you can click it to open whatsapp in a separate station window - that’s when you get the chance to login, and subsequently update.

This worked for me. Thanks @ptbello


This happened to me too. It’d been like it for the last 2 days or so.

Just now, I clicked on Whatsapp, then clicked “Help” and then “Reset Current Application”

And that fixed it!

Over here the reset current application did not work.

What I also found out is that when I go to the + button to add another app, the list is stuk loading. Maybe it has something to do with the same problem?

I have received an update just now, but the status of whatsapp is the same as before

(Radar Cz Info) #48

After running the WhatsApp desktop, when the stupid message “WhatsApp works with Google Chrome blah blah blah …” appears, click on the Wiev - Reload toolbar above. Problem solved …

Hello, I’ve the same issue… and I’m running the Station latest version.


I commented yesterday that it started working randomly.i upgraded right now to the latest. its supposed to be fix for the very issue from yesterday. it broke my WhatsApp. lol il keep messing with it and see if it comes back like yesterday

(Raphael Gako) #55

Just updated right now and it didn’t fix the issue. Thought electron uses latest chromium.

(Guillermo Carrión) #56

Didn’t saw this post before, I just recently created an issue for this.

I had before 1.31.0 without any issues with WhatsApp and now after update 1.31.2 it stopped working.

(Pedro Cuéllar) #57

Having the same issue. I downgraded to 1.31.0 and it worked for like a minute and then it broke again. Basically I:

  1. Uninstall and re-install Station. Nothing
  2. Removed WApp instance. Nothing
  3. Updated Chrome, clean cache. Nothing
  4. Downgraded Station version. Nothing

Help please!

Hey there,

I did not have the WhatsApp issue 1.31.1, but the update to 1.31.2 caused it to appear :smiley:

macOS 10.13.6 (17G3025)
MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)

Stationversion 1.31.2

(Matvey Ustinov) #59

Same here.
Happened after updating to last Station version.

I’m having the same issue


(Giulio De Candia) #61

I am also having the exact same issue. Restarting Station does not help.

(Andy Ellis) #62

As of ten minutes ago app still not working, have removed the instance and added again but the same result. I recently started using Station and love it, so a solution very welcome. Thx.
