FM WhatsApp beats SMS in terms of cost, customer preference and user interface. FM WhatsApp only requires customers to have an active internet connection and a suitable mobile phone; everything else is free. Customers also prefer messaging over any social media alternative.
Top 7 Ways to Fix FM WhatsApp Not Working on PC
While you can access FM WhatsApp through a web browser, FM WhatsApp for Windows isn’t perfect. Open for too long, there will be frequent disconnects, and your messages won’t be synced across devices. If you are unable to work on Windows 11 because of FM WhatsApp, here are the methods you can take a look at.
1. Force close FM WhatsApp
FM WhatsApp may not work if you experience problems with some apps running in the background. So you may want to force close FM WhatsApp for PC, and restart it.
The Task Manager can be opened by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc on the keyboard. On the Processes tab, right-click FM WhatsApp and select End Task. Reopen FM WhatsApp on your PC and try using it again.
2. Check the internet connection
A slow or incomplete internet connection can also affect FM WhatsApp on your desktop. Try loading some web pages or run a quick speed test on your PC to test your internet connection.
3. Allow FM WhatsApp to run in the background
If FM WhatsApp doesn’t have the necessary permissions to run in the background, it won’t be able to send notifications or sync your messages until you open it. To avoid this, you must allow FM WhatsApp to run in the background.
Step 1: Open the start menu and click the gear-shaped icon to launch settings. Alternatively, press Windows key + I.
Step 2: Use the left pane to navigate to the Applications option. Click Installed Apps in the right pane.
Step 3: Scroll down to find FM WhatsApp in the list. Click the three-dot menu icon next to it and select Advanced Options from the menu below.
Step 4: Under Background App Permissions, select Always from the drop-down menu. Finally restart FM WhatsApp, start a new session and check if it works in the background.
4. Check app permissions
Like any other app, FM WhatsApp requires some permissions to function.
Step 1: Right-click the Start icon and select Installed Apps from the menu that appears.
Step 2: Find FM WhatsApp in the list. Click the three-dot menu icon next to it and select Advanced Options from the resulting menu.
Step 3: Use the switches under App Permissions to enable all permissions and finally reboot to check if the problem persists.
5. Sign out and sign in
If your FM WhatsApp problem is just a temporary glitch, you can try logging out and back in.
Step 1: Open FM WhatsApp on your PC. Click the menu at the top and select Sign Out.
Step 2: Click Exit to confirm.
Step 3: Open FM WhatsApp on your iPhone or Android. Click the menu in the upper right corner and select Link Device from the menu.
Step 4: Click Link Device and scan the QR code with your phone’s camera.
6. Repair or reset the app
If the above solutions don’t work, you can use the steps below to repair or reset FM WhatsApp.
Step 1: Click the search icon on the taskbar or press Windows key + S to open the search menu. Type FM WhatsApp in the search box and select App Settings.
Step 2: Scroll down to Reset and click Repair.
If repairing the app is also having issues, you can try resetting the app from the same menu. Note that resetting the app will delete all your messages and login data, making it the same as reinstalling the app.
7. Update FM WhatsApp
If you don’t update apps regularly, they will eventually become outdated. If your FM WhatsApp problem is due to an outdated version, updating the app should help more.
One of the above solutions should help you fix FM WhatsApp on Windows 11. However, if nothing works, you might consider using FM WhatsApp Web for a while.
