From November say goodbye to WhatsApp if you use these phones below, click to see

Ever-evolving technology has created a number of social media platforms that residents can use to communicate with each other, including social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Twitter, and WhatsApp, to name a few. 

WhatsApp, on the other hand, is one of the most popular and widely used social media platforms. This is because communication is instantaneous as long as both communicating parties have access to the Internet; It is also economical, for example, to make voice calls compared to a traditional phone call; You can also share files such as audio, video, documents, and images. 

When you form a group, for example a group that is formed exclusively for all the employees of a particular organization, it is possible to communicate with a large number of people at the same time. 

The Whatsapp program, however, is no longer compatible with some smartphones, which will be bad news for many smartphone users. 

The ability to transmit messages and photos or make video judgments using encrypted instruction mapping may be lost for 43 smartphone models, including iOS and Android devices, starting next month, November 1. 

Smartphones with Android 4.4 or lower no longer support WhatsApp, while iPhones no longer support iOS 9 or higher. As a result, the adoption of the app will suffer if it continues to be used with older smartphone models. The mobile phone models included in this list are Sony Xperia, Huawei Ascend Mate and Ascend D2, Apple iPhone SE, 6S and 6S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S3, Trend II, Trend Lite, Core, Ace 2 and LG Optimus F7, F5, L3 II Dual, F7 II and LG Optimus F5 II, among others. 

This means that if you own any of the types of phones listed above, you should immediately start looking for a solution to prevent the use of the WhatsApp platform from being blocked. 

Therefore, citizens are advised to at least purchase phones that run on a newer version of Android or phones that do not fall into the phone model categories listed above.
