WhatsApp IM

Submitted By Nik ThYpHoOn (ThYpHoOn)


This plugin enables support for the WhatsApp protocol in Adium.
You need to sniff your WhatsApp password to use this protocol plugin, a tutorial can be found here.

Contacts are not synced, therefore you need to add them as new contacts in Adium after added the plugin once manually.


1.0: Initial production release - core functions are now working with Adium 1.5.9
1.2: Updated libpurple dependency, made the plugin work with Adium 1.5.10 / 1.5.11 - the group messaging should be improved (can't test it right now)
1.2.2: Fixed login issue with WhatsApp server
1.3: Updated whatsapp-libpurple and fixed dependency issues

Great work!!! Thank you so much! Please can you update the plugin for adium 1.5.10 beta?

# by reg on 08/14/14 at 14:28:53

Awesome! You got me downgrading to 1.5.9 just for this.
I hope it will soon be compatible with the latest Adium.

# by ThYpHoOn on 08/15/14 at 16:18:50

I'm working on this, thank you for the feedback :)

# by sonya627 on 08/18/14 at 22:29:20

Thank you so much. Excellent work. Also just downgraded to 1.5.9 in hopes of making this work. Quick question: whats the expected password format? I got decimal representation of the 20 byte string but don't want to spend too much on trial and error. Thanks!

# by franc on 08/30/14 at 09:32:42

Please update, it is Adium 1.5.10 now, no more beta.

Unable to Download

I've submitted an update of the plugin but it needs to get approved by a moderator. May this cause a download problem, my test download worked but nevermind if you want to download a fresh version you can visit my blog: to download the plugin.

The zip file is corrupted. You'll have to wait for an update!

# by lechuck on 11/18/14 at 02:05:14

how you fix the new conection problem?

# by lechuck on 11/18/14 at 02:06:33

couldn't find where or how you put the "android" part in adium...

# by diegolp on 11/18/14 at 08:29:22

The connection problem is fixed in the new plugin code. Adium is not pidgin so it's a bit different!

# by ThYpHoOn on 11/18/14 at 12:58:46

It's already fixed in the adium plugin, you can download it from my blog or wait till it gets approved on this site.

# by lechuck on 11/20/14 at 08:46:59

thanx thyphoon.

# by abarrera on 11/18/14 at 21:29:03

So, I get connected send a message, later I get a disconnection.

# by franc on 11/24/14 at 23:51:59

installed it with Adium and it worked again.
Thank you!

# by stsola on 01/09/15 at 13:50:46

install and download of plugin don't wok, can you resolve?

thank you

# by yadgary on 03/02/15 at 12:43:50

ThYpHonOn, thanks for a great work. After having used the app for sometime with no problems whatsoever, since some weeks I have not been able to receive messages sent to me from Android devices. (I do receive messages sent from iOS devices ). I am not sure, but I suspect it started after the Whatsapp Web upgrade (which only holds for Android devices). This is especially weird, as the plugin allows me to see when my contacts are writing messages, but I never receive the actual message. Worst still, their app indicates that I have actually received and read the message. Any ideas?

# by lechuck on 03/05/15 at 18:46:15

hi typhoon! just found out there's a "yowsup2" now... curiously found out coz whatsapp is not working for me anymore, but don't know if its just me. :)

# by compasiune on 03/13/15 at 11:36:40

Great work! Useful update!

# by lechuck on 03/20/15 at 17:19:42

Still not working :(
Installed youwsup2, reinstalled the plugin... and it was for worse. heh.
Now it says it can't run the plugin even.

# by Megachip on 04/09/15 at 10:37:23

Looks there is a new version but still not approved?

"Last Updated: 04/07/15"

Is there any other way to download this file?

# by ThYpHoOn on 04/09/15 at 11:44:20

You can download the latest version here:

# by Megachip on 04/10/15 at 16:09:12

Oh, thx. But seems this is the version of November which didn't work anymore with android clients.
So no new version is out?

# by AA313CAA on 04/29/15 at 01:28:38

Finally got it working with 1.6.2 plugins.

I don't sniff the wa password as the app now check strict on the certificate fingerprint. I just grap the pw file from the phone and decrypted it.

# by franc on 07/06/15 at 12:34:41

Again it happened, WhatsApp Account disappeared.
I downloaded from:
installed it and back it was and worked.
