Know how the landline phone can connect you to WhatsApp
To use WhatsApp, an internet connection and a mobile phone number are required. However, you can now connect the beta app through your landline number to send and receive messages.
Here are the steps that could activate your WhatsApp connection while using a landline number.
First, download the WhatsApp Business app on your smartphone, then agree to its terms and conditions and tap continue.
In the third step, the app will ask you to enter your country code and phone number. Enter your landline number. But omit the 0 in front.
As this is a landline number, you will not be able to receive OTP for verification. Instead, you can opt for the Call Me option by tapping on it.
You will receive a call to your WhatsApp landline number for the OTP. Listen carefully to the OTP. Enter the OTP and your number will be verified.
After verification, set your profile picture, name and other details. Now you can use WhatsApp on your smartphone using your landline.
Add the landline number of your home connection separately and an SMS will be sent by default to your landline number.
A fixed connection obviously cannot receive a verification code via SMS, so you just have to wait 60 seconds after WhatsApp sends the SMS.
