If you're using one of these smartphones, you won't have the option of using WhatsApp


As per a report by a UK-based publication, The Sun, WhatsApp will quit dealing with a few models of mobile phones beginning from November 2021. 

Everybody across the globe including yourself and me depend on the famous application that is WhatsApp, to speak with our companions, friends and family, and associates. It's no wonder why everybody is a bit stressed that they will no longer be apart of the community or may find that many may be absent from it.

More than 40 diverse mobile phone models won't abe able to support the use of the application according to The Sun and the cut off time for refreshing the software is November 1. 

Per the publication, WhatsApp won't be upheld on both iPhone and Android models, accordingly, influenced clients will either need to purchase another mobile phone or update the product of their mobile phones. 

To utilise WhatsApp, Android clients should utilize Android 4.1 or later, while iPhone clients should be on iOS 10 or later, the distribution said.
