Whatsapp To Stop Working On 43 Smartphones from November

By Andrew Abba

WhatsApp has shared a list of devices that will no longer support the WhatsApp messaging app starting November 1, 2021.

In general, these will be Android phones that are running on Android 4.0.3 or lower, and Apple iPhones that are running on iOS 9 or older.

If you are using an old Android phone or an iPhone then you may have to worry about Whatsapp support.

If your Android phone doesn’t even run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which was released in 2011, then it’s time you should get an upgrade.

It’s a different issue if your phone is compatible with Android upgrades and you haven’t done it. In this case, just go to the Settings menu and check “About Phone: to see which Android version is running. If there is an update option available then hit it to continue using Whatsapp.
